The present invention combines two individual assays, which are two different cholesterol assays: an assay measuring scavenger receptor class B type I (SR-BI)-mediated cholesterol efflux and an assay measuring ATP binding cassette protein 1 (ABCA1)-mediated cholesterol efflux, and uses them in parallel to test human and animal sera for their potential to stimulate efflux, as mediated by either of the two receptors described above.
