A comparison of lipopolysaccharide-induced hepatitis in ethanol-fed Wistar and Lewis rats.

Abstract

Elevated concentrations of plasma proinflammatory cytokines have been detected in patients with alcoholic hepatitis (AH) and in a model of lipopolysaccharide-induced hepatitis in ethanol-fed Wistar rats. These cytokines have been implicated in the pathogenesis of the liver damage. Considering the likely involvement of the immune system in AH, and the… (More)
