Atherosclerosis-a major killer of people in Western societies-is not yet completely understood. In Atherosclerosis: Methods and Protocols, Angela Drew and a panel of experts have assembled a comprehensive collection of traditional and cutting-edge techniques for investigating this disease and its possible treatments. Each readily reproducible method includes step-by-step instructions and practical information regarding sample collection, the choice of animal model system, experimental design, and practical data analysis techniques. Assay systems for serum or plasma determination of lipoproteins are also described, along with assays for those plasma proteins recently identified as implicated in atherogenesis, including cholestryl ester transfer protein, homocysteine, glycated lipoproteins, and apolipoprotein(a). Additional techniques cover the isolation and culture of cells and glycosaminoglycans from atherosclerotic plaques, and the collection and analysis of experimental atherosclerotic lesions. Comprehensive and richly detailed, Atherosclerosis: Methods and Protocols enables all biomedical investigators to select those optimized techniques that may be most fruitfully used to study the development, progression, and treatment of atherosclerotic lesions today.
