This publication presents in book form 84 papers presented at a symposium on Drugs Affecting Lipid Metabolism held in Milan, Italy, in 1960. Although the conference was international in scope and included contributions from most of the laboratories with active programs in lipid metabolism, better than 75% of the papers are in English. All have English summaries. The papers are grouped under the following major headings: Recent Data on the Metabolism of Cholesterol and of Lipids; Experimental Methods for Evaluating Drugs Affecting the Metabolism of Cholesterol and of Lipids; Drugs Affecting the Lipid Metabolism in Relation to Experimental Atherosclerosis; Therapeutic Value of Drugs Affecting the Lipid Metabolism.

As might be expected, a majority of the contributions are concerned with fundamental lipid biochemistry and involve work with various in vitro systems or laboratory animals. The scientific standing of the contributors to this aspect of the program and the high quality of
