How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) has been the standard treatment for end-stage acute and chronic liver disease. Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is one of the major causes of poor graft function early after OLT, and adversely influencing graft and patient survivals. It is unknown whether I/R injury influences liver fibrogenesis. Livers from...
Fructose 1,6-biphosphate (FBP) has been shown to exert therapeutic effects in models of ischemia-reperfusion in organs other than the liver. This study compared FBP and University of Wisconsin (UW) solution during cold storage and reperfusion, among mitochondria of adult male Wistar rat livers. Adult male Wistar rats were assigned to two groups acc...
Background/aims: Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is among the major causes of poor graft function early after liver transplantation that adversely influences patient survival. A variety of mediators have been implicated in the pathogenesis of I/R vascular injury, including nitric oxide (NO). Because of the beneficial effects of NO during precond...
Isolated liver perfusion has been used to evaluate the beneficial effects of several agents. In the present study, we developed a model using a recipient rat to reperfuse harvested livers in an ex situ, in vivo recirculating system. A total of 25 reperfusion procedures using adult male Wistar rats as donors and recipients were done. The preservatio...
