This has led to the conclusion that the primary lipid-protein interaction in the apolipoproteins is between the apoproteins and phospholipid constituents. A variety of methods have been utilized for examination of the apoproteinphospholipid interaction (Table III). One is an inhibition by the apoprotein of mitochondrial apo-~-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase. This apoenzyme has an absolute requirement for phospholipid for reactivation. Thus, an apoprotein or its fragment that binds phosphatidylcholine will competitively inhibit the activation of the enzyme.

One can produce the disease in experimental animals Simply by raiSing their plasma lipoprotein levels and these experimental lesions are at least partially reversible when lipid and lipoprotein levels are returned to normal. But we must be aware that elevated lipids and lipoproteins represent only one factor in what must be a disease of multifactorial origin. For this reason we have to encourage different disciplines to solve the problem. We have a long way to go. There are indications that the number of new coronary events is decreaSing slightly as a result of preventive measures, but the number of atherosclerotic deaths increases further in most industrial countries.
