Rabbits were fed a semipurified diet augmented with 0.1% cholesterol fed in the form of crystalline cholesterol, egg yolk or dried egg powder. The levels of atherosclerosis resulting from the diets were similar: they were highest in the group fed egg yolk and lowest in that fed crystalline cholesterol. Animals fed dried egg exhibited the highest serum total cholesterol levels and the lowest ratio of serum .alpha./.beta. lipoprotein cholesterol.
