Intestinal cholesterol transport might serve as an attractive future target for cardiovascular disease reduction, provided that underlying molecular mechanisms are more extensively elucidated, combined with improved techniques to measure changes in cholesterol fluxes and their possible anti-atherosclerotic consequences.
In the series of experiments described in this thesis we attempt to establish valid techniques to measure intestinal cholesterol fluxes and to generate hypotheses on the mechanisms that underlie interventions targeting this particular part of human cholesterol homeostasis.
