1. Although hepatic function is well known to deteriorate following bacterial infection, the underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood. We have previously reported that nitric oxide (NO) radical leads to a decrease in the ketone body ratio (KBR) and in ATP content due to the inhibition of mitochondrial electron transport in primary cultured rat hepatocytes. 2. To evaluate the effects of NO radical on the liver in patients with postoperative sepsis, we analysed both the stable end-product… CONTINUE READING
