Measurement of bile acid production in hyperlipidemic man: does phenotype or methodology make the difference?


Bile acid production has been measured in 13 studies in 10 hyperlipidemic subjects by simultaneous use of isotope dilution kinetics and chemical balance methodology. When the data of all 13 studies were averaged, the correlation between the two sets of values was negative and weak (r - 0.01, NS). However, when the correlations for normoglyceridemic and… (More)
