Journal: Nigerian Journal of Health and Biomedical Sciences

Low-density lipoproteins have been sufficiently established as an important precursor of atherosclerosis. The actual mechanism is still unclear, and the current technique of using radioisotopes has clinical limitation. However, the current study techniques or methods excellently elucidate the functional aspects of atherosclerosis. KEY WORDS: LDL, Atherosclerosis, Radioisotopes, Endothelium. [Nig.
