    Atherosclerosis involves a gradual process of inflammation with the stiffening of the arterial wall. This inflammatory condition can be caused by many factors, including elevated cellularity, lipid accrual, cellular debris, as well as extracellular substances (De Leon et al., 2015). Among these factors, lipids are crucial in atherosclerosis as they are the key components of the vascular plaques (Ekroos et al., 2010). Lipid biomarkers have important roles in the translational …Read the Rest
