Use of Combined Monoclonal Antibodies for the Immunochemical Determination of Apolipoproteins A–I and B in Human Plasma
Plasma cholesterol level Is a risk factor for the development of coronary artery disease (1). Indeed, the cholesterol bound to low-density lipoprotein (LDL) appears to better correlate with the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) as compared to plasma cholesterol levels while the cholesterol bound to high-density lipoprotein (HDL) is inversely related to the risk of developing CHD.
