This review initially considers the association between premature coronary artery disease and abnormal lipoprotein cholesterol levels, but then focuses on recent evidence linking the apoproteins of lipoproteins to atherosclerosis. This evidence suggests that although cholesterol is the major component common to the plasma and the arterial wall, plasma apoproteins may serve as a better marker of risk for atherosclerosis.
