OBJECTIVES:The mechanisms of Fas–Fas ligand (Fas–FasL)-mediated apoptosis in the pathogenesis of fulminant hepatic failure (FHF) have not been well defined. This clinical study was carried out to assess which cells expressed Fas–FasL and to determine their involvement.METHODS:The subjects were 24 patients with FHF who underwent liver transplantation at our institution. For comparison, nine chronic hepatitis (CH) patients and six living liver donors (LD) were also enrolled. Liver tissues were… CONTINUE READING
