1. Experimental atherosclerosis in rabbits generally required at least eight week«SQ»s of feeding atherosclerotic diet. . 2. In the present study on rabbits by supplementing the atherogenic diet with calcium and weekly injections of cholecalciferol (Vit.D), atherosclerosis could be induced in three weeks time. 3. Since the atherosclerosis in rabbits can be induced now in a short time of three weeks, the present rabbit model may be preferred for anti-atherosclerotic studies.
