Non-Arterial Deposition of Lipids and Lipoproteins: Significance in Relation to Atherogenesis

  • K. W. Walton


Professor F. Gotthard Schettler has had a longstanding interest in seeking better means of identifying those at risk of atherosclerosis and thereby instituting effective preventative or prophylactic measures. For example, 32 years ago he published a paper entitled “Ist der sogenannte Greisenbogen der Hornhaut ein Hinweis auf Atherosklerose?”[1]. He has also had an enduring interest in the mechanisms of atherogenesis.
