This handbook has been produced as a guide for clinicians and laboratory staff involvedin the investigation of dyslipidaemias and in the assessment of cardiovascular risk. Thenetwork of SAS centres for cardiovascular biomarkers was set up in response to anincreasing demand for tests other than the routine lipid profile to aid in the assessmentand management of patients.The aim of this handbook is not only to list available tests and the laboratories whichoffer them, but also to give a brief description of the tests, the circumstances in whichthey are indicated and interpretation of the results.More information is available in specialist textbooks of clinical chemistry and lipoproteinmetabolism1.Betteridge DJ, Illingworth DR, Shepherd J.
