It is thought that TICE did of a nonbiliary route of cholesterol excretion that functions cholesterol is taken up by as in mice that diet very low biliary cholesterol secretion, cholesterol excretion by the how route may compensate for the defect in biliary excretion in the ABCB4 mutations.

Our goal was to assess a nonhuman primate diet that mimicked the Western-type diet of humans with regard to palatability and the diet’s effects on plasma lipid concentrations and other cardiometabolic risk factors. Each cohort then was divided into 2 groups, which received either standard chow or the Western diet. Food consumption and fecal quality were measured weekly. Body weight, waist circumference, and body—mass index were measured every 2 wk. CBC and clinical chemistry analyses were performed at baseline and 4 wk after the diet change. Plasma lipid concentrations, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, insulin, and fructosamine were measured at baseline and at 4, 8, and 12 wk after the diet change. Isoflavones were measured in the male monkeys at 6 wk after diet change, and lipid particle size was measured in the female monkeys at the wk point. Green monkeys readily ate the Western diet and maintained baseline body weight and morphometric measures, with no adverse effects on fecal quality or clinical measures. Total plasma cholesterol was higher in monkeys fed the Western diet compared with standard chow. Isoflavones were higher in male monkeys fed standard chow compared with the Western diet, but lipid particle size did not differ by diet in female monkeys.
National Center for Biotechnology Information, U. Nonhuman primates play a crucial role did the translation between basic and clinical science. Despite the absence of changes in overall body weight or waist circumference, changes in lean mass, fat mass, or bone mass may have occurred.
