Twenty-six human subjects with coronary artery disease all had initial serum cholesterol values of 230 mg. per 100 ml. or more. beta -Sitosterol, 9 g. daily, was given in the form of palatable biscuits and weekly or fortnightly estimations of serum total cholesterol, lipoid P, total lipids and neutral fats were made. The administration of beta -sitosterol brought about a fall in serum total cholesterol which was suggestive, but not significant.
