Abstract

In Western societies the mortality from cardiovascular disease is some 6–7 times higher in males than in females in the age group between 40 and 50 years. It can thus be suspected that besides well established risk factors such as plasma lipid levels, age, overweight, diabetes, hypertension, smoking etc., the gender may also be of importance for the development of atherosclerosis. This is why our group has for some years been interested in the influence of sexual hormones on the lipid status.
