Current Status of Cholestasis Induced by Monohydroxy Bile Acids

  • Norman B. Javitt
Part of the Hepatology book series (H, volume 2)


The development of an experimental model for the induction of cholestasis (1) has led to further exploration of the pathophysiological mechanism and to a search for evidence that monohydroxy bile acids may be a cause of cholestasis in man.
