Chronic bile duct obstruction induces changes in plasma and hepatic levels of cytokines and nitric oxide in the rat.

Abstract

Chronic bile duct ligation (BDL) is a useful model of cirrhosis. However, its parallel plasma and liver changes in levels of cytokines and nitric oxide (NO), involved in liver damage, remain unknown. The aims of this work were to quantify both the plasma and hepatic levels of five cytokines and NO in cirrhotic rats, 28 days after bile BDL, and to analyze… (More)
