      Abstract

      The estimation of intravenous fat tolerance by a nephelometric method has been studied. The value for the fat tolerance, K2, obtained with this method compared to simultaneously estimated K2 by the original PVP gradient method showed good agreement between the two methods, the coefficient of correlation being r = 0.92. The nephelometric method for the intravenous fat tolerance test is quite simple and suitable for routine clinical diagnosis.
