Disorders of Lipid and Lipoprotein Metabolism

  • DeWitt S. Goodman


It is the aim of this chapter to review the major advances that occurred during 1976 with regard to our knowledge about the metabolism of the major plasma lipids and lipoproteins and about clinical abnormalities in lipid transport, with particular emphasis on the hyperlipidemias. The chapter will build on, and in part briefly summarize, the information and ideas reviewed last year (Goodman, 1976), and will also review briefly some other major developments that occurred before 1976 in order to provide important background information.
