The Abnormal Serum Lipid Pattern in Patients with Coronary Arteriosclerosis
Studies in experimental arteriosclerosis have indicated that the relative level of serum lipid phosphorus may be as significant a factor as the absolute level of serum cholesterol in the production of arterial lesions. For this reason, the serum lipid pattern of 82 patients with coronary arteriosclerosis has been compared with that of 112 healthy adults. An elevation of the serum cholesterol, serum lipid phosphorus and the serum cholesterol-lipid phosphorus molar ratio has been found in most of the patients with coronary arteriosclerosis.
