The liver is the biochemical center of the body. When it fails, there are myriad abnormalities. Of the various symptoms of hePatic failure, hepatic coma is most apparent and has probably been the most widely investigated. Most investigations have concerned themselves entirely with the periphery. However, the brain is protected from the periphery by a blood-brain barrier which, under normal circumstances, prevents the entry of noxious or unwanted substances or of normal substances in abnormal… CONTINUE READING
