A thioacetamide-induced hepatic encephalopathy model in C57BL/6 mice: a behavioral and neurochemical study.


OBJECTIVE Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a neuropsychiatric syndrome resulting from liver failure. In the present study, we aimed to standardize an animal model of HE induced by thioacetamide (TAA) in C57BL/6 mice evaluating behavioral symptoms in association with liver damage and alterations in neurotransmitter release.
