what is of DEOXYCHOLIC ACID with CAS 83-44-3?
Deoxycholic acid sodium salt, which is a secondary bile acid and the metabolite of intestinal bacteria, provides a nonsurgical treatment to significantly reduce submental fat in adults via injection directly into moderate-to-severe fatty tissue below the neck. When injected into fatty tissue, deoxycholic acid helps destroy fat cells. Although deoxycholic acid has many applications beyond human health, the application as a dyslipidemia drug was licensed to Kythera from Los Angeles Biomedical Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in 2007. Allergan acquired Kythera recently in 2015.
