This volume is devoted to cancer and atherosclerosis, two of the most important proliferative pathologies in the world today. This book provides a useful point of reference on the mechanisms that link cholesterol esters to cell proliferation, summarizing the latest advances both in basic science and clinical research.

This book will be of undoubted value to biomedical students and teachers, as well as those actively engaged in research on cholesterol metabolism, cancer, and atherosclerosis.
