Dear Dale,

The generic name for questran is cholestyramine.  If you do a search on 
Hubnet, you'll find hundreds of papers with "cholestyramine" as a text 
word.  I've done a quick search of reviews with that word, and here are a 
few articles to get you started.  I haven't read the whole articles, but the 
abstracts sound useful.  Good luck.
