A method for the measurement of initial rate of serum cholesterol esterification is described. The technique is a modified version of the assay described originally by Stokke and Norum (7). Improvements include the depression of background values as well as an increase in the overall efficiency of the procedure. The study of healthy male human subjects revealed that the initial rate of cholesterol esterification increases linearly with the individual's serum free cholesterol content.
