High-density lipoprotein, HDL, is one of the hottest topics in lipid research and cardiovascular disease prevention today. Emphasizing the functional properties of HDL and covering emerging therapeutic targets and roles for cardiovascular disease, this book summarizes the current state of knowledge in a rapidly growing domain at the interface between lipidology and cardiovascular therapies and treatments. It presents evaluative assays, extensively reviews HDL particles' functional, compositional, and metabolic heterogeneity (with special attention given to potent atheroprotective properties of small, dense HDL), and compares current and future HDL-raising therapies.

Keywords: Biochemistry (Chemical Biology), reconstituted HDL, apolipoprotein-mimetic peptides, CETP inhibitors, nicotinic acid, fibrates, delipidated HDL, prevention of cardiovascular disease, hdl, hdl cholesterol, premature cardiovascular disease, treatment of cardiovascular disease, lipidology
