The rate of biliary cholesterol secretion in high-and low-responding rhesus monkeys

Short Communications


The rates of secretion of cholesterol in bile measured by an isotope ratio method were found similar in cholesterol-fed high- and low-responding rhesus monkeys. The results indicate that the failure on the part of the high-responders to increase proportionately the fecal excretion of neutral steroids to compensate for the higher absorption of cholesterol than the low-responders, as suggested earlier, is not due to a difference in the rate of biliary cholesterol secretion but must lie in some other aspect of cholesterol metabolism.
