Cirrhosis of the liver was induced in rats by twice weekly inhalation of carbon tetrachloride in conjunction with sodium phenobarbitone administration. At sequential time intervals during induction, liver blood flow and extraction efficiency of colloid were assessed in order to elucidate changes in these parameters which occur with cirrhosis. Liver samples were also taken for histologic examination and graded for extent of disease. Initially there was a fall in extraction efficiency (and thus… CONTINUE READING
