The possibility that plasma lipoproteins may be involved in human vascular disease or may act as indicators of such disease states has initiated much interest in the physicochemical properties of these macro-molecules1–6. Reliable and rapid methods that can be widely used to extend the correlation between disease and the properties of macromolecules could have considerable clinical and research value, particularly if the results of such methods were shown to correlate with a disease state before its actual clinical manifestations.
