  • Biomarker function:HDL play a key role in protecting against heart disease via their role in reverse cholesterol transport, or the transport of excess cholesterol out of the body. HDL are also part of the innate immune system due to their ability to bind a number of toxic substances in the blood. It has recently been associated with development of post-stroke infections in a large study [1].
