More than half of orally administered N-cyclohexyl linoleamide-car-boxyl-C14 yl-CI was recovered from feces of rats, and 30 to 50 percent of the absorbed carbon-14 activity was excreted in urine. N-Cyclohexyl linoleamide had an inhibitory eflect on the absorption of cholesterol from the thoracic duct and caused a decrease in the deposition of cholesterol in the livers of rats that had been fed cholesterol.
