About this book


This innovative book focuses on HDL and its relationships to triglyceride-rich particles. As new therapies for HDL raising become available, a comprehensive understanding the role of HDL in Coronary Heart Disease is of great importance. This book is an excellent resource for educating physicians and scientists about dyslipidemia and HDL metabolism, including many exogenous substances which interact with and influence HDL. Readers will benefit from the unique visual exposition and the insights of international experts.
