Malaria, caused by infection with Plasmodium spp., is a life cycle-specific disease that includes liver injury at the erythrocyte stage of the parasite. In this study, we have investigated the mechanisms underlying Plasmodium berghei-induced liver injury, which is characterized by the presence of apoptotic and necrotic hepatocytes and dense infiltration of(More)
Bile acids in serum, urine and dialysate of 8 patients with renal failure in chronic hemodialysis were analyzed by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The following results were obtained: 1. Lithocholic acid, 3 beta-hydroxy-5-cholen-24-oic acid, deoxycholic acid, chenodeoxycholic acid, ursodeoxycholic acid, and cholic acid were(More)
In order to find an artificial internal standard compound for quantitative determination of bile acids by gas chromatography, 7 alpha,12 alpha-, 7 alpha, 12 beta-, 7 beta, 12 alpha- and 7 beta,12 beta-dihydroxy-5 beta-cholan-24-oic acids were chemically synthesized with cholic acid (1) as the first starting material. The gas chromatographic retention time(More)
