Low density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidative modification is one of the major processes involved in atherosclerosis along with other degenerative disorders. Oxidised LDL is preferentially accumulated by macrophages which become so called "foam cells" within the atheromatous plaque and contributes to the accumulation of cholesterol, typical of atherosclerosis.
