In female Wistar rats the animal model of TAA-induced liver cirrhosis has been tested for reliability and usefulness for studies on lipid and lipoprotein metabolism in cirrhosis. From our results we draw the following conclusions: Application of 300 mg TAA/l drinking water from the 4th to the 6th month of life leads in all treated rats to liver cirrhosis which is rather uniformly of micronodular surface morphology. Under this treatment the survival rate is about 90 percent. Increasing the… CONTINUE READING
