The risk factors of atherosclerosis have been reported as elevated levels of total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) and low levels of high density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) in the serum. Oxidized low density lipoprotein (oxLDL) is reported to be an important independent predictor of atherosclerosis1.
