The Relation Between Diet, Plasma Cholesterol and Atherosclerosis in Pigeons, Quails and Chickens
F.J. Bavelaar and A.C. Beynen

Abstract:
A literature survey was conducted to determine the relationship between plasma cholesterol concentrations and the severity of diet-induced atherosclerosis in pigeons, quails and chickens. A direct relationship was found between plasma cholesterol and atherosclerosis as induced by cholesterol feeding.
