Impaired cholesterol efflux into hdl2 in metabolic syndrome

      Objectives: Cholesterol efflux from peripheral macrophages into high-density lipoprotein (HDL) is a key atheroprotective function of HDL. The capacity of human serum or total HDL to accept cholesterol has been linked with cardiovascular morbidity. Our aim was to study 1) how cholesterol efflux into total HDL, HDL2 and HDL3 (total HDL-, HDL2- and HDL3-efflux, respectively) is associated with a phenotype of low HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C) and early coronary heart disease (CHD) 2) how the efflux parameters are related to each other 3) which cardiometabolic factors predict efflux.
