Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor activity was estimated in lymphocytes from preterm and term infants to elucidate if the hypercholesterolaemia in preterm infants is secondary to a block in cholesterol transport across the cell membrane, analogous to that in familial hypercholesterolaemia. LDL receptor activity was fully developed in preterm infants and no different from that of term infants and of a normal adult control.
