    The plasma levels of endothelin-like immunoreactivities (ET-IR) of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were compared with those of patients with liver cirrhosis (LC), using a specific radioimmunoassay for endothelin-1. The mean concentration of plasma ET-IR of 21 HCC patients (30.3 ±...

    MAP, RPF, GFR, V and UNa V were measured in nine conscious control and in 11 conscious cirrhotic rats with ascites before and following two bolus injections (100 and 600 pmol/kg body wt) of endothelin (ET). PRA and plasma concentration of aldosterone and ANP were measured in basal conditions and...

    Endothelin (ET) is one of the most potent vasoconstrictors known so far. It has been proposed that the ET-induced contraction of hepatic stellate cells (Ito, endothelial cells) is an important mechanism for the development of portal hypertension. The purpose of this study was to investigate in...

    Background: Hepatopulmonary syndrome is a pulmonary vascular complication of cirrhosis in which intrapulmonary vasodilatation (IPV) results in hypoxemia. Endothelin-1 (ET-1), produced by proliferating cholangiocytes, has been identified as a mediator of IPV in an animal model of HPS, but the...

    OBJECTIVES: Plasma endothelin-1 (ET-1) levels are increased in patients with cirrhosis and ET-1 production is increased in the liver itself during experimental injury. These data suggest a possible role for this vasoactive peptide in intrahepatic microcirculatory changes that contribute to the...

    The localization of increased intrahepatic vascular resistance and the segmental vascular responsiveness to endothelin-1 are not well known in liver cirrhosis. We determined the segmental vascular resistances and their response to endothelin-1 of isolated portally perfused bile duct ligation...

    Background: Both angiotensin (Ang)-II and endothelin-1 (ET-1) are involved in the pathogenesis of liver fibrosis. Activated hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) are considered a key effector of liver fibrosis. Aims: To explore the effect of Ang-II on ET-1 expression in cultured human HSCs and the...

W.; Webb, D. J.; Newby, D. E.; Hayes, P. C. // Gut;Apr2004 Supplement 3, Vol. 53, pA13 

    Endothelin (ET)-1 synthesis and receptor expression are increased in the injured liver. To date, there are no studies to examine the role of ET-1 on systemic and portal haemodynamics in patients with cirrhosis. For the first time, researchers have shown that ET-1 contributes to the maintenance...
