Delineation of molecular changes in intrahepatic cholesterol metabolism resulting from diminished cholesterol absorption.


The absorption of cholesterol by the small intestine is a major route for the net entry of cholesterol into the body and can therefore affect the plasma low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) concentration. These studies used ezetimibe, a potent inhibitor of cholesterol absorption, to delineate the biochemical and molecular changes in intrahepatic… (More)
