Blood and plasma 5-hydroxytryptamine levels in patients with cirrhosis.

Abstract

Serotoninergic mechanisms are thought to play a role in portal hypertension. Because this biomine is metabolized by the liver, peripheral blood and plasma levels of 5-hydroxytryptamine and 5-hydroxyindole acetic acid (the main metabolite of 5-hydroxytryptamine) were measured in 30 patients with cirrhosis.
