The testing of Total Bile Acids is a valuable diagnostic tool for patients with acute hepatitis, chronic hepatitis, hepatic sclerosis and hepatic cancer. In this kind of patients, Total bile acids are increased in serum. When the enterohepatic circulation system is impaired, blood levels of bile acids are increased as a result of diminished hepatic elimination of bile acids from the portal blood, which results from diminished hepatic clearance. Therefore, serum or plasma bile acids levels is a sensitive indicator of liver function in all species, reflecting both hepatic synthesis as well as secretory and re-absorptive functions. Th e Total Bile Acids kit of BioSystems S.A. uses the enzymatic cycling method measured colorimetrically (bireagent fixed time). Although the kit includes an aqueous standard, the use of the company’s Biochemistry Calibrator is recommended.
