Abstract

Atherosclerotic arterial disease has been related to hypercholesterolemia both in clinical and in experimental studies. However, the effect of hypercholesterolemia on cholesterol transfer and retention in relationship to the major blood-artery transfer barrier, the intact endothelium, is little known.
