Biochemical Studies on Permeability and the Interaction Between Blood Constituents and Arterial Components in Atherosclerosis
It is now accepted that large amounts of plasma low density lipoprotein (LDL), and cholesterol ester which must be derived from it, accumulate in atherosclerotic lesions, but it is not clear if this is the result of increased endothelial permeability or of increased retention within the intima. In this paper I will try to draw together some of the available biochemical evidence.
