In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Impaired clearance of triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins contributes to atherogenesis. It can be argued that exercise may decrease the risk of atherosclerotic diseases through its potential to improve the metabolic capacity for triacylgycerol and hence, clearance of triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins. The investigations described in this thesis focused on the influence of exercise on postprandial lipid and lipoprotein metabolism. [Continues.]
