A procedure is described for the simultaneous determination of cholic acid and chenodeoxycholic acid pool sizes and fractional turnover rates. After oral administration of known amounts of 11,12-dideuterated chenodeoxycholic acid and 2,2,4,4-tetradeuterated cholic acid, the ratios of chenodeoxycholic acid-D2/chenodeoxycholic acid and cholic acid-D4/cholic acid are measured in consecutive serum samples, after which fractional turnover rates and pool sizes of chenodeoxycholic acid and cholic acid are determined arithmetically. In 7 healthy volunteers pool sizes for chenodeoxycholic acid and cholic acid were 22.9 +/- 7.8 and 24.1 +/- 11.7 mumol/kg, respectively. The corresponding values for the fractional turnover rates were 0.23 +/- 0.10 and 0.29 +/- 0.12/day. After oral administration of the labelled bile acids in capsule, the obtained pool sizes were significantly higher than after administration in a bicarbonate solution. Bile acid kinetics were also performed in a patient suffering from a cholesterol synthesis deficiency and in a patient very likely suffering from a bile acid synthesis deficiency. Furthermore, the kinetics of the intestinal absorption and hepatic clearance of unconjugated bile acids have been investigated in 2 healthy subjects.
