METHODS A total of 112 SAP rats induced by retrograde injection of 5% sodium taurocholate into the biliary-pancreatic duct, randomly assigned to a untreated group and three treated groups emodin(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the change in expression of Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) of splenic macrophage in patients with hypersplenism due to portal hypertension (PH), and investigate the role of TLR4 of splenic macrophage in hypersplenism. METHODS Splenectomy was performed on 20 patients with hypersplenism due to PH (hypersplenism group) and 6 patients with(More)
AIM To explore the mechanism of benign biliary stricture. METHODS A model of trauma of bile duct was established in 28 dogs. The anastomosed tissues were resected and examined by light and electron microscopes on day 3, in wk 1, 3 and mo 3, 6 after operation. CD68, TGF-beta1 and alpha-SMA were examined by immunohistochemical staining, respectively. (More)
