The diagnostic sensitivities of serum bile acids determined by three different methods in the fasting and in the postprandial state were compared in 43 patients with cirrhosis of the liver. When a method with high analytical sensitivity (capillary gas-liquid chromatography, GLC, or radioimmunoassay, RIA) was used, the serum concentrations of bile acids… CONTINUE READING
