Fourteen subjects, of whom 12 had high serum cholesterol levels, were allowed food to appetite and were given 6 to 8 g. of beta -sitosterol by mouth immediately before meals for from 13 to 64 weeks; the usual intake of beta -sitosterol was 20 to 25 g. daily. Fasting blood samples were analysed at intervals for total cholesterol, lipid P and total lipid. In 7 subjects the effect of sitosterol on serum lipoproteins, as estimated by ultracentrifuge, was studied.
