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
