Gallstone solubilizing agents

What are Gallstone solubilizing agents?

Gallstone solubilizing agents are used to dissolve small non-calcified gallstones. They suppress the amount of cholesterol synthesized by the liver or inhibit the amount of cholesterol absorbed from the intestines.

They are used to breakdown gallstones in patients, who do not need to have surgery.
