Univariate analyses for the pooled data (n=64) from the four groups

r p r p
Cholic acid
Deoxycholic acid
Chenodeoxycholic acid
Ursodeoxycholic acid
Lithocholic acid
  • Correlation coefficients (r) for the plots of LBTT and MCTT versus the proportions of cholic, deoxycholic, chenodeoxycholic, ursodeoxycholic, and lithocholic acids, expressed as percentages of total serum bile acids, total conjugated serum bile acids, and total unconjugated serum bile acids.

  • MCTT, mouth to caecum transit time; LBTT, large bowel transit time.
