The HDL Handbook: Biological Functions to Clinical Implications brings laboratory research in HDL from bench to bedside in this needed resource for researchers and clinicians studying cholesterol, lipids, epidemiology, biochemistry, molecular medicine, and pathophysiology of cardiovascular diseases. In addition, researchers and clinicians working with an aging population, corporate researchers, post-doctorates; medical students and graduate students will find this publication useful because the scope of coverage includes basic science, genetics, epidemiology, and treatment of HDL cholesterol as well as potential targets to modify HDL cholesterol.
- Comprehensive coverage of basic science, genetics, epidemiology and treatment
- Reputable content on latest advances in HDL cholesterol research
- Inclusive, worldwide content with country specific information
- In depth discussion of potential targets to modify HDL
The primary audience for this work is researchers and clinicians studying cholesterol, lipids, epidemiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, molecular medicine, and pathophysiology of cardiovascular diseases; researchers and clinicians working with an aging population; corporate researchers; postdocs; medical students and graduate students.
The secondary audience is allied health professionals, nurses, and researchers and clinicians studying nutrition.
