PMID:  5428044     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The composition of bile acids in human bile was determined in bile-rich duodenal fluid on four consecutive days in a group of seven patients with cirrhosis and eight control patients with no liver disease. There was a marked reduction of secondary biliary bile acids in cirrhotic patients. Possible mechanisms for these changes are discussed.
