Bile acids released postprandially can modify the rate and extent of lipophilic compounds' absorption. This study aimed to predict the enterohepatic circulation (EHC) of total bile acids (TBAs) in response to caloric intake from their spillover in plasma. A model for TBA EHC was combined with a previously developed gastric emptying (GE) model. Longitudinal gallbladder volumes and TBA plasma concentration data from 30 subjects studied after ingestion of four different test drinks were supplemented with literature data. Postprandial gallbladder refilling periods were implemented to improve model predictions. The TBA hepatic extraction was reduced with the high-fat drink. Basal and nutrient-induced gallbladder emptying rates were altered by type 2 diabetes (T2D). The model was predictive of the central trend and the variability of gallbladder volume and TBA plasma concentration for all test drinks. Integration of this model within physiological pharmacokinetic modeling frameworks could improve the predictions for lipophilic compounds' absorption considerably.
