Leucine and phenylalanine kinetics in compensated liver cirrhosis: effects of insulin.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of the altered ratio of branched-chain amino acid to aromatic amino acid concentration in liver cirrhosis is poorly known. We explored the possible link between altered amino acid concentrations and kinetics in cirrhosis. METHODS Post-absorptive leucine and phenylalanine rates of appearance (Ra) and their response to insulin… (More)
