Brief description Drugs affecting lipid metabolism have revolutionized the treatment of heart diseases. There is, however, an urgent need for further reduction of high remaining risk. A most promising direction is increasing levels of _good cholesterol�. A new type of such therapy are simple compounds mimicking structure of good cholesterol. We have synthesized new such compounds that are even more active than good cholesterol. Now we will test these compounds in animals and in clinical trial.
