The protective effect of fructose with regard to hypoxia-induced cell injury in overnight cold preserved hepatocytes (20 hr at 4 degrees C) was investigated. The addition of fructose (at 10 and 20 mM) resulted in an improved survival of hepatocytes during their normothermic (37 degrees C) reoxygenation, irrespective of the time of fructose addition before(More)
