Cholesterol is a soft, waxy substance found among the lipids (fats) in the bloodstream and in all the body's cells. It's an important part of a healthy body because it's used to form cell membranes, some hormones and is needed for other functions. But a high level of cholesterol in the blood -- hypercholesterolemia -- is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, which leads to heart attack. Cholesterol and other fats can't dissolve in the blood. They have to be transported to and from the cells by special carriers called lipoproteins. There are several kinds, but the key ones are low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) Low-density lipoprotein is the major cholesterol carrier in the blood. If too much LDL cholesterol circulates in the blood, it can slowly build up in the walls of the arteries feeding the heart and brain. Together with other substances it can form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can clog those arteries. This field is alive with exciting new research in all areas including frontal advances in the areas of managing cholesterol as well as cholesterol lowering drugs. This new book focuses on cholesterol in atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.

A complete guide to the role of high-density lipoproteins (HDL)in new and emerging therapies With high-density lipoproteins (HDL) playing an increasing rolein cardiovascular disease prevention, there is a growing need foran in-depth look at HDL and its clinical value. This booksummarizes the current state of knowledge in the field, providingfor the first time a comprehensive, systematic, stylisticallycoherent, and up-to-date review of the composition, structure,heterogeneity, metabolism, epidemiology, genetics, and function ofHDL. Divided into three main parts, High-Density Lipoproteins firstexamines normal HDL particles, then describes defective HDL, andfinally addresses the therapeutic normalization of subnormal levelsand defective biological activities of this lipoprotein class. Thebook highlights the functional properties of HDL, which arerelevant to the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis and thrombosis,and discusses the compositional and metabolic heterogeneity of HDLparticles. Readers will come away with a clear understanding of the role ofHDL in biological processes, the potential value of functional HDLas a therapeutic target, and how current and emerging therapies arepoised to influence the treatment of heart disease in thefuture.
