The hypocholesterolemic effect of the hydrophobic surfactant, poloxalene 2930, was studied in the rabbit to determine whether this agent prevents experimentally produced atherosclerosis. Male rabbits were divided into four groups and fed a control diet (group A) or an atherogenic diet (groups B, C, and D) for 10 wk. Diets of groups C and D were supplemented with 0.5 and 1% poloxalene 2930, respectively. Animals in group B developed significantly greater levels of cholesterol in the serum and… Expand
