    1. The reliability of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) as a biomarker for atherosclerosis risk;
    2. the appropriateness of measuring HDL concentration, HDL particles, or HDL function (eg, cholesterol efflux capacity) as a measure of risk;
    3. clinical trials examining HDL increase as a therapeutic strategy;
    4. beneficial properties of HDL;
    5. new antiatherogenic drugs; and
    6. the relative usefulness of obtaining HDL measurements in clinical practice.
