Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9721099A1] Methods of use of anti-cholesterol antibodies are described for diagnosis and treatment of atherosclerosis. In one embodiment of the invention, anti-cholesterol antibodies are used to assay samples drawn from atherosclerotic lesions for the amount of VLDL, IDL and LDL, but not HDL molecules. In another embodiment of the invention, the anti-cholesterol antibodies are used as fusiogens to promote fusion of lipoprotein molecules and of liposomes, to promote clearance of cholesterol from the body.
