Lipoproteins, Liver Disease, and Atherosclerosis
The blood levels of the Sf 10-20 class of giant cholesterol-bearing lipoproteins were studied in a group of patients with cirrhosis. No significant difference was observed between the blood levels of this group and of a similar group of normal individuals of corresponding age and sex. This observation suggests that patients with cirrhosis are as susceptible to atherosclerosis as the general population.
