Parameters of total body cholesterol metabolism in humans can be determined by using a three-pool model to analyze the turnover of plasma cholesterol following the injection of radiolabeled cholesterol. In the past this required a rigorous schedule of approximately 36 blood samples over a 10-month period. We have developed a convenient sampling schedule… (More)
