Plasma, liver and biliary BA.
A. Plasma free and taurine-conjugated BA. B. Biliary BA. C. Liver BA. BA were evaluated after 14 days either Ph or CD and at the end of the study (day38). Since the CD group from day 0 to day 14 went on assuming the same usual commercial diet as before, day 14 was considered as the control value with respect to Ph. Plasma, liver and bile were collected from the same animal. The results were expressed as mean ± SD (n = 3–4 animals) CA: cholic acid; CDCA: chenodeoxycholic acid; DCA: deoxycholic acid; LCA: lithocholic acid; UDCA: ursodeoxycholic acid; muCA: muricholic acid; T-: Taurine conjugated-.
