Lipid composition was studied in media and intima of human atherosclerotic aorta as well as in cells from the both layers of the vessel wall. A correlation was found between the content of main lipids in the cells and the tissue, from which these cells were isolated. The lipid composition of cells, isolated from normal and atherosclerotic aorta zones, was unaltered within 12 days of cultivation. Primary culture of human atherosclerotic aorta cells might be used for study of lipoidosis in atherosclerosis.
