DescriptionChenodeoxycholic acid (or Chenodiol) is an epimer of ursodeoxycholic acid (DB01586). Chenodeoxycholic acid is a bile acid naturally found in the body. It works by dissolving the cholesterol that makes gallstones and inhibiting production of cholesterol in the liver and absorption in the intestines, which helps to decrease the formation of gallstones. It can also reduce the amount of other bile acids that can be harmful to liver cells when levels are elevated.
Synonyms
  • Chenic acid
  • Chenodesoxycholic acid
  • Chenodiol
  • Acide chenodeoxycholique
  • Acido chenodeoxicholico
Brand Names
  • Chenodiol
  • Chenodal
  • Chenodeoxycholic Acid Leadiant
IndicationChenodiol is indicated for patients with radiolucent stones in well-opacifying gallbladders, in whom selective surgery would be undertaken except for the presence of increased surgical risk due to systemic disease or age. Chenodiol will not dissolve calcified (radiopaque) or radiolucent bile pigment stones.
