Abstract

Elevated plasma LDL cholesterol concentrations result primarily from two mechanisms: LDL overproduction and loss of hepatic receptor-dependent LDL removal. This knowledge can be used to lower plasma cholesterol and thereby retard or even reverse atherosclerosis. Pharmacologic agents are useful, as are dietary approaches.
