Packard (Glasgow Royal Infirmary) gathers concise summaries of current work in the field, in sections on clinical aspects of coronary artery disease; lipids, lipoproteins, and atherosclerosis; prevention and treatment strategies; and infection, inflammation, and secondary causes of atherosclerosis. Each section offers an overview of the topic in several areas, illustrated with summary entries (about one page each) on previously published research papers. The summaries give title, author, and publication information, present background, and offer interpretation and commentary. Some areas of research addressed include diet and exercise in the prevention and treatment of diabetes and coronary heart disease, new clinical trials of lipid-regulating agents, lipids and infection, and the role of nuclear receptors in regulating lipid metabolism. The book is distributed in the US by CRC Press.
