Alterations of lipid contents in blood, hepatocytes, and enterocytes in the early stage of acute liver failure induced by 90% hepatectomy in the rat.

Potential alterations in lipid metabolism in the early stage of acute liver failure are poorly elucidated. In the present study, acute liver failure was induced by subtotal hepatectomy (90%) in the rat in order to investigate early alterations in lipid contents in blood, hepatocytes, and enterocytes. Hypocholesterolemia and hypotriglyceridemia appeared 2… (More)
