Abstract

Bile acids play a critical role in facilitating the absorption of nearly all poorly soluble, relatively nonpolar compounds from the intestinal lumen into the intestinal mucosal cell. In addition, there is evidence to suggest that bile acids also may act to augment movement of lipids from the mucosal cell into the intestinal lymph [1]. A thorough understanding of bile acid metabolism, therefore, is important for considerations of the normal process of fat absorption and for the elucidation of the causes of certain disease states in man manifest by malabsorption of fat.
