This study is concerned with the effect of heparin on plasma lipid partition in man under normal and certain pathologic conditions. That heparin reduces the opacity of lipemic blood plasma has been demonstrated in several laboratories. While some observations have been made on individual plasma lipids after heparin administration,6-10 comprehensive studies of plasma lipid partition in normal persons and in disturbances associated with lipemia are almost wholly lacking. In this investigation the effect of heparin on plasma lipids was observed in 25 subjects in four groups consisting of 10 normal men, five patients with coronary atherosclerosis, seven with nephrosis and
