Abstract : Studies were carried out in human subjects with subfractions of Lipomul. It was found that the infusion of the whole emulsifying system: (1) lowered blood hematocrit to the same degree as the whole emulsion (2) caused a rise in lipid components of plasma to higher levels than those observed after administering the whole emulsion (3) increased the dienoic (linoleic) acid of the red blood cell to about the same degree as the whole emulsion, and (4) caused a derangement of the qualitative two dimensional picture of the phospholipids of blood platelets. None of the above changes were observed when the phospholipid was excluded from the emulsifying system. (Author)
