Colonic absorption of unconjugated bile acids


Colonic absorption of three major unconjugated bile acids—cholate, chenodeoxycholate, and deoxycholate—was measured under steady-state conditions using a technique of colonic perfusion in healthy volunteers. Aqueous solutions at pH 8.0 and varying in concentration from 1 mM to 10 mM were used. The rate of chenodeoxycholate absorption averaged nine times… (More)
