Value of the critical flicker frequency in patients with minimal hepatic encephalopathy
Minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) is mainly diagnosed using psychometric tests such as the psychometric hepatic encephalopathy score (PHES). Despite the clinical and social relevance of MHE,… Expand
Mitochondrial oxidative stress and CD95 ligand: A dual mechanism for hepatocyte apoptosis in chronic alcoholism
Apoptosis plays an important role in the progression of alcohol‐induced liver disease to cirrhosis. Oxidative stress is an early event in the development of apoptosis. The major aim of this study was… Expand
