E) HDL

A). cholesterol crystals-componentof fibrous cup
B). collagenC).proteoglycanD). Elastin-Matrix components
E). HDL does not exist in ather. plague it will be LDL smooth muscle cell and macrophages phagocytose LDL->foam cell_>fatty streak
The answer is E


  #6

Atherosclerosis presents ( from inside the lumrn to the outer vessel wall) as:
-A fibrous cap composed of smooth muscle cells,collagen,connective tissue matrix,and scattered leukocytes.
-A cellular zone composed of smooth ms. cells,macrophages,and lymphocyte.
-A central core composed of necrotic cells,cholesterol clefts,lipid filled foam cells,and plasma proteins.
-Proliferating capillaries when lesions are well -advanced.


So,my ans. is also...... E.) HDL

But,if anybody has some other info.,please add it.I will really appreciate.
Thank You All

I also think its E simply because HDL's function is to transfer lipid from the periphery to the liver mainly atherosclerotic plaques.....so whats it doing in the plaque if its suppose to prevent from the plague from growing!!
