abstract

  • Increased serum cholesterol is a risk factor for atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease (CAD) (1)(2). Reduction of serum cholesterol has, therefore, been targeted for the prevention and management of CAD with cholesterol screening and is the primary tool for initial risk assessment (3)(4). Cholesterol, however, can also be quantified in skin.
