Introduction: NATO Advanced Study Institute on Regression of Atherosclerotic Lesions
Since the arteries of most living adults in the Western World presumably have atherosclerotic plaques and their progression may lead to infirmity or death, the possibility that plaques can regress has considerable practical significance. Therefore, atherosclerosis regression is a subject of importance to both experimentalists and clinicians.
