Abstract

Bile and serum were analysed in 45 cases of cholelithiasis and 25 control subjects for cholesterol, phospholipids, bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase and LCAT activity. Serum phospholipids were found to be elevated in sixty percent of cases, whereas phospholipids in bile were found to be decreased. Serum alkaline phosphatase and alanine aminotransferase were normal. Serum and bile LCAT activity was found to be significantly depressed.
