Low density lipoprotein (LDL) is known to bind to arterial wall proteoglycans (APG), an interaction which may initiate cholesterol deposition in the arterial wall. The objective of this study was to determine whether a predominance of small, dense LDL (LDL-III, d = 1.044-1.063 g/ml) in the circulation in association with an atherogenic lipoprotein phenotype (ALP) (i.e. LDL-III > 100 mg/dl, an elevated plasma triglyceride and a low high density lipoprotein cholesterol) alters LDL reactivity… CONTINUE READING
