1. Hepatocyte growth factor : Studies on local and systemic release and effects during infectious disease; in vivo and in vitro
Sammanfattning : The interaction of mesenchymal and epithelial cells that occurs after organ injuries results in enhanced production of cytokines, such as hepatocyte growth factor (HGF). HGF is a glycoprotein with unique properties that contribute to wound healing after injuries. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The studies presented here evaluate the biliary, parenchymal and vascular enhancement effects of two T1-shortening liver-specific contrast agents, Gd-BOPTA and Gd-EOB-DTPA, in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of healthy subjects and of patients.Ten healthy volunteers were examined with both contrast agents in a 1.

Sammanfattning : Growth hormone (GH) is known to have several important effects in the control of metabolism. The aim of these studies was to investigate how GH regulates genes involved in fatty acid transport and metabolism in the liver and the interaction between GH and fatty acids in this regulation.

Sammanfattning : Hepatocyte transplantation is an experimental treatment for patients with end-stage liver disease and inborn metabolic liver disorders. Studies in animal models and human trials have shown that allogenic hepatocytes infused through the portal vein physiologically integrate into the liver parenchyma, replacing missing liver function.
