  • NAFLD is the most common form of chronic liver disease, it is the hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome. Periodontal disease may helpfully increase the risk of progression from NAFL to NASH. Effective strategies are needed to treat NAFLD and prevent progression to NASH so we conducted this study to investigate the efficacy of EPL and statin on biochemical parameters and histo-pathological finding in rats with NAFLD and periodontitis. Methods: 35 Male rats were divided into 5 groups, group… CONTINUE READING
