The thrombogenicity index and atherogenicity index were proposed by Ulbricht and Southgate (1991) with the aim of considering not only the family of fatty acids but also their biological effect.
The potential pharmacological actions of herbs or isolates are not limited to inhibiting SMC phenotypic switch, but they can also improve other pro-atherogenic parameters such as endothelial dysfunction, platelet activation, lipid peroxidation, pro-inflammatory signaling, ROS production and macrophage atherogenicity.
The ability of blood serum to induce cholesterol accumulation is referred to as serum atherogenicity.

The nutritional quality index is estimated by several indices of fatty acid composition; the indices of atherogenicity (IA) and thrombogenicity (IT), according to Turan and coworkers [42], the hypocholesterolemic/hypercholesterolemic fatty acid ratio (HH) according to Testi and coworkers [40], EPA + DHA, PUFA/(SFA-stearic acid) according to Unusan [44], PUFA/SFA ratio according to Kalogeropoulos et al.
These indices were available for atherogenicity (IA) = [(12:0 + (4 x 14:0) + 16:0)] / (MUFA + n-6 + n-3), and thrombogenicity (IT) = (14:0 + 16:0 + 18:0) / [(0.
Such an aggregation of Lp(a) to apoA-I or another protective protein may modulate the apoA-I particles, elevated in concentrations and pro-inflammatory, ultimately leading to diabetogenicity (1,4) and atherogenicity (2), documented in Turks.
