Van der Vorst et?al. underscore the relevance of HDL quality control, considering HDL source and processing, but argue that disease- or storage-associated structural modifications of HDL cannot explain the observed pro-inflammatory effects on macrophages. Discrepancies between reported effects of HDL in macrophages are probably related to methodological differences.
