Amino acid challenge in patients with cirrhosis: a model for the assessment of treatments for hepatic encephalopathy.
BACKGROUND/AIMS To mimic episodic hepatic encephalopathy after gastrointestinal bleeding under controlled conditions, cirrhotic patients were challenged with an amino acid mixture of comparable… Expand
Stimulating healthy tissue regeneration by targeting the 5-HT2B receptor in chronic liver disease
Tissue homeostasis requires an effective, limited wound-healing response to injury. In chronic disease, failure to regenerate parenchymal tissue leads to the replacement of lost cellular mass with a… Expand
Antibody-targeted myofibroblast apoptosis reduces fibrosis during sustained liver injury.
BACKGROUND/AIMS Myofibroblast apoptosis promotes the resolution of liver fibrosis. However, retaining macrophages may enhance reversal. The effects of specifically stimulating myofibroblast apoptosis… Expand

Borderline magnetism in Sr4Ru3O10: Impact of La and Ca doping on itinerant ferromagnetism and metamagnetism
An investigation of La and Ca doped Sr4Ru3O10, featuring a coexistence of interlayer ferromagnetism and intralayer metamagnetism, is presented. La doping readily changes magnetism between… Expand
Crystallization dynamics of a single layer complex plasma.
We report a series of complex (dusty) plasma experiments, aimed at the study of the detailed time evolution of the recrystallization process following a rapid quench of a two-dimensional dust liquid.… Expand
