The protective role of high-density lipoproteins in atherosclerosis.

Serum high-density lipoprotein level is known to be correlated inversely with the incidence and mortality rates of ischemic heart disease. Although some reports pointed out that in case of hyperalphalipoproteinemia, lesions in the coronary arteries were occasionally found, it is also noticed that in very rare condition, no atheromatous lesions found even in patients with hereditary alphalipoprotein deficiency (Funke et al., 1991). However, clinical surveys have confirmed that high high-density-lipoprotein cholesterol level is favorable in preventing the development of atheroclerotic lesion and high-density lipoprotein together with apolipoprotein AI are currently considered to be the most reliable parameters in predicting the development of atherosclerosis in hyperlipidemia.
