Bacterial translocation in acute liver injury induced by D‐ galactosamine
Acute liver injury is associated with a high rate of infectious and septic complications. Most of these infections are produced by gram negative enteric bacteria. We evaluated bacterialExpand
Tolerance to rat liver allografts: IV. Acceptance depends on the quantity of donor tissue and on donor leukocytes.
Liver allografts in some rat strains are often spontaneously accepted across a complete major histocompatibility barrier without the requirement for immunosuppression while other nonliver allograftsExpand
Class‐Specific Histone/Protein Deacetylase Inhibition Protects Against Renal Ischemia Reperfusion Injury and Fibrosis Formation
Renal ischemia‐reperfusion injury (IRI) is a common cause of renal dysfunction and renal failure. Histone/protein deacetylases (HDACs) regulate gene accessibility and higher order protein structuresExpand
Modification of disaccharidase activity measurement in rat bowel.
This study describes a modification of the existing disaccharidase assay in rat small bowel in which whole bowel, rather than mucosa, is utilized. In addition, the use of total vs. specific activityExpand
Hyperosmolarity associated with diabetes insipidus alters hepatocyte structure and function but not survival after orthotopic liver transplantation in rats.
BACKGROUND This study was designed to evaluate the effect of donor hyperosmolarity secondary to diabetes insipidus, an almost universal occurrence among brain-dead patients, on hepatic function. Expand
Secretory event in intestinal grafts during preservation ischemia.
BACKGROUND Ischemia triggers secretion of proteins from the intestine, including type II secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA2). This "secretory event" was studied in intestinal grafts during the firstExpand
The effect of endotoxin and Lactobacillus pretreatment on peritoneal macrophage behavior in acute liver injury in rat.
The effect of endotoxin and Lactobacillus R2LC pretreatment in acute liver injury, induced by D-galactosamine was studied. Administration of D-galactosamine resulted in much higher luminescentExpand
Early secretory events during intestinal graft preservation.
Biochemical alterations in rat Thiry-Vella fistulas.
In order to obtain baseline information on the secretory function of normal rat bowel for our work on intestinal graft ischemia, we studied several biochemical parameters in rat Thiry-Vella fistulasExpand
