Method "Sterols were measured by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry unless indicated otherwise (otherwise measured by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry)."
Comments "Sterols in plasma exist in both free and fatty-acyl esterified forms. For quantification of total (esterified and free) sterols, plasma was subjected to base hydrolysis, extracted with organic solvent, and sterols were partially purified by solid-phase extraction (37–39). Fourteen different sterols of endogenous and exogenous sources (diet) were detected at concentrations spanning five orders of magnitude (supplementary Table VA)." See notes above & beneath table
