Donor liver preservation and stimulation of adhesion molecules : cold preservation initiates the cascade.


BACKGROUND Pro-inflammatory adhesion molecules (including ICAM-1, E-Selectin) are important in clinical hepatic ischaemia and reperfusion injury. The initiating factors remain to be fully elucidated. METHODS Needle biopsies taken during and after donor liver preservation were studied in 28 cases by immunohistochemical methods. Human responder cell… (More)
