N-acetyl-cysteine protects liver from apoptotic death in an animal model of fulminant hepatic failure

Abstract

Background: This work was undertaken to investigate whether treatment with N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) prevents oxidative stress and inhibits the apoptotic pathways in an animal model of fulminant hepatic failure. Methods: Rabbits were experimentally infected with 2×104 hemagglutination units of a rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus isolate. Results: The… (More)
