Recent studies have shown that pharmacological increases in HDL cholesterol concentrations do not necessarily translate into clinical benefits for patients, raising concerns about its predictive value for cardiovascular events. Here we hypothesize that the size-modulated lipid distribution within HDL particles

The surface properties of Span 80 vesicles at various cholesterol contents, together with those of various liposomes, were characterized by using fluorescence probes. The membrane fluidity of the Span 80 vesicles was measured by 1,6-diphenyl-1.3.5-hexatriene (DPH) and trimethlyammonium-DPH (TMA-DPH), and
