The liver is an essential organ for lipid homeostasis and metabolism as well as detoxification. Bile formation and biliary elimination of lipids (e.g., cholesterol) are key elements in lipid homeostasis and detoxification. Interference with bile formation (e.g., by drugs) may lead to acquired forms of liver disease.
