The effect of taurine on the triton WR 1339 induced hyperlipidaemia was studied in rats. A single injection of triton (350 mg/kg., i.p.) produced significant increase in serum cholesterol and triglyceride concentration. Taurine administered twice (1 g/kg., oral) to the triton induced hyperlipidemic rats produced significant decrease in serum cholesterol (P < 0.01) and triglyceride concentrations (P < 0.001). The livers of rats treated with taurine showed no significant differences with those of normal rats whereas the rats treated with triton alone showed increase in liver weight and its lipid content.
