The efficacy and possible sideeffects of chenodeoxycholic acid have been studied in 35 patients with biliary calculosis lithiasis. In 53% of the cases treated for six months or more partial or complete gallstone dissolution was observed. The action of this drug on hematic triglyceride level and on severity and frequency of the hypostenic dyspeptic symptoms and biliary colic is interesting from the viewpoint of new therapeutic prospects. Diarrhea has been the only relevant side-effect.
