Publisher's Summary

A sugar that freshens air in rooms may also clean cholesterol out of hardened arteries. The sugar 2-hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin, or cyclodextrin, removed cholesterol that had built up in the arteries of mice fed a high-fat diet, researchers report. The sugar enhances a natural cholesterol-removal process and persuades immune cells to soothe inflammation instead of provoking it, say immunologist Eicke Latz and colleagues.

"A Sugar Can Melt Away Cholesterol" is from the May 14, 2016 issue of Science News.
