We describe a new preservation modality combining machine perfusion (MP) at subnormothermic conditions(21 °C) with a new hemoglobin-based oxygen carrier (HBOC) solution. MP (n=6) was compared to cold static preservation (CSP; n=6) in porcine orthotopic liver transplants after 9 h of cold ischemia and 5-day follow-up. Recipients' peripheral blood, serial(More)

Systemic ghrelin administration induces the immediate-early gene protein product, c-Fos, in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus (ARC) of satiated rats and this increase is potentiated in fasted rats. The aim of this study was(More)
