Abstract

Lipid composition and the activities of lipolytic enzymes and cholesterol acyltransferase have been examined in femoral and iliac arteries of surgically treated patients suffering from arteriosclerosis obliterans. Negative correlations for the contents of triglycerides and cholesterol esters, and for the ratios of triglyceride/cholesterol ester contents and cholesterol acyltransferase/cholesterol esterase activities, were found.
