Effects of cholic acid, 7 beta-hydroxy- and 12 beta-hydroxy-isocholic acid on bile flow, lipid secretion and bile acid synthesis in the rat.

The effects of three epimeric trihydroxy-cholanoic acids, cholic acid (C), 7 beta-hydroxy-(7 beta) and 12 beta-hydroxy-(12 beta) isocholic acids on bile flow, lipid secretion, bile synthesis and bile micellar properties were studied in the rat with a bile fistula.
