The Role Of Bile Acids In Intestinal Ischaemia

We found in subsequent experiments that intestinal ischaemia is aggravated by bile deficiency [33,34], Moreover, it was found that bile production is decreased under these conditions [35], This was further supported by the observation that the administration of bile acids (500 mg pulverised and radiation-sterilised pig bile) to dogs with intestinal ischaemia prevented death in 60-70% of the animals [36], The protective value of bile acids was also indicated in rats suffering from 'strangulated ileus', where endotoxin plays a fundamental role in the pathogenesis. Bile acids given into the intestinal lumen (20 mg pulverised and radiation-sterilised pig bile) prolonged the survival of the animals by 7 hours (50%) [37], These results indicate that the use of proper bile acid preparations will provide new opportunities for the treatment of patients with acute abdominal conditions.
