A volume on the biliary system appeared in , based on a symposium of the NATO Advanced Institute held in September, , in Newcastle upon Tyne in England. It soon became an authorita­ tive text on the problems of the biliary tract and, for instance, the discussion on the biliary secretion of organic anions, organic cations and inorganic. Cite this chapter as: Hofmann A.F. () The Enterohepatic Circulation of Bile Acids in Man. In: Taylor W. (eds) The Hepatobiliary System. Specific applications of these techniques are then addressed in contributions relating to bile acid analysis of tissue, serum, urine, and feces. With this integrated approach we have attempted to provide a volume which represents a comprehensive review of the analytical field of bile acids, while also serving as a useful reference book for. Measurement of bile acid concentrations is, therefore, a good indicator of hepatobiliary function, but is not specific for the type of underlying liver disease and diseases that secondarily affect the liver (e.g. metabolic diseases like hyperadrenocorticism) can also increase bile acid concentrations.

Research has focused on bile acids as a key player in lipid metabolism as well as a cytotoxic or protective agent for hepatobiliary and digestive diseases. Bile acids have long been one of the most popular targets for basic and clinical research in gastroenterology, and numbers of reports are still being published in major journals as novel. Cholestasis is defined as the impairment in formation or excretion of bile from the liver to the intestine. It may result from defects in intrahepatic production of bile, impairment of hepatic transmembrane transporters, or mechanical obstruction to bile flow. In cholestasis, hepatocytes are exposed to high levels of bile acids, particularly those bearing hydrophobic properties. from book Bile acids in and regulatory networks of hepatobiliary bile acid transporters. is the main import system for conjugated bile salts into the liver but also indicates that.   Detailed discussion of the hepatic physiology is beyond the scope of this book. However, understanding the roles of the liver is necessary when considering the microscopic anatomy.
