Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a syndrome resulting from acute or chronic liver failure. The main hypothesis suggests a state of hyperammonemia which is responsible for both direct and indirect alterations in cerebral metabolism with increased production of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. The effect of milk-derived alphalactalbumin (α-LAC) and vitamin C (vit. C) was evaluated in thioacetamide (TAA)-induced HEmodel in the current study. Animals were treated with TAA (100 mg/kg, i.p.) or… CONTINUE READING
