Ongoing hepatocellular regeneration and resiliency toward galactosamine hepatotoxicity

In previous studies, we reported that the age-dependent hepatotoxicity of galactosamine (GalN) was evident in hepatocytes maintained in primary cultures. Cellular proliferation and tissue repair are not manifested in response to injury in this in vitro system. Neonatal (5-day) rats have ongoing hepatocellular proliferation in contrast to adult (5-month… CONTINUE READING
