Craig tissues by serum transport proteins such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and from peripheral tissues to the liver by high-density lipoproteins (HDL) to be metabolized into bile and other end products of metabolism. Lipoproteins accumulate in the intima, where they are more susceptible to oxidation. The presence of cholesterol deposits within the intima is itself pro-inflammatory and stimulates the recruitment of monocytes into the neointima by the expression of cell adhesion molecules on the luminal surface of endothelial cells [8].

Increased systemic inflammation has been correlated with an increased risk of ASVD. Increase in the systemic inflammatory biomarker C-reactive protein (CRP) in particular has been found to complement lipid profiles as a risk factor for atherosclerotic events, as it predicts risk even among individuals with low LDL-cholesterol [12]. CRP is synthesized mainly in the liver under IL-1 regulation as part of the acute phase response. The acute phase response is a primitive response to infection or trauma that predates the innate and adaptive immune response.
