ABSTRACT

Various cellulose and dextran anion exchangers bind bile salts in vitro under conditions of pH and ionic strength resembling those in the lumen of the small intestine. Of these substances, diethylaminoethyl (DEAE) cellulose, guanidoethyl cellulose, and DEAE Sephadex reduced hypercholesterolemia when added to the diet of cholesterol-fed cockerels. In addition, DEAE Sephadex reduced serum sterols in normocholesterolemic cockerels and dogs, lowered serum phospholipids and triglycerides in cholesterol-fed hypercholesterolemic cockerels and in normocholesterolemic dogs, and increased fecal excretion of bile acids in hypercholesterolemic cockerels. The data indicate that these insoluble cationic polymers exert their hypocholesterolemic effects by interrupting the enterohepatic circulation of bile acids.
