Serum cholesterol fell in 5 normal human subjects given a mixture of beta - and dihydro- beta -sitosterols immediately before meals, but rose in some patients with disorders of lipid metabolism. Sitosterol reduced the serum cholesterol concentration and arrested the growth of xanthomata in a subject with xanthomatosis.
