    Background: Biliary atresia (BA) is a typical cholestatic neonatal disease, characterized by obliteration of intra- and/or extra-hepatic bile ducts. However, the mechanisms contributing to the pathogenesis of BA remain uncertain. Because of decreased bile flow, infectious complications and...

    BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Progression of chronic cholestatic disorders towards ductopenia results from the dysregulation of cholangiocyte survival, with cell death by apoptosis prevailing over compensatory proliferation. Currently, no therapy is available to sustain cholangiocyte survival in the...

    Background: Bile-duct ligated (BDL) rats recruit pulmonary intravascular macrophages (PIMs) and are highly susceptible to endotoxin-induced mortality. The mechanisms of this enhanced susceptibility and mortality in BDL rats, which are used as a model of hepato-pulmonary syndrome, remain unknown....

    Background. Antioxidant enzyme activities decrease after bile duct ligation. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of melatonin and acetylsalicylic acid on antioxidant enzyme activities in gastric oxidative stress induced by bile duct ligation. Methods.

  • Effects of Hepatocyte CD14 Upregulation during Cholestasis on Endotoxin Sensitivity. Ming-Huei Chou; Jiin-Haur Chuang; Hock-Liew Eng; Po-Chin Tsai; Chih-Sung Hsieh; Hsiang- Chun Liu; Chiou-Huey Wang; Chih-Yun Lin; Tsun-Mei Lin // PLoS ONE;Apr2012, Vol. 7 Issue 4, p1 

    Cholestasis is frequently related to endotoxemia and inflammatory response. Our previous investigation revealed a significant increase in plasma endotoxin and CD14 levels during biliary atresia. We therefore propose that lipopolysacharides (LPS) may stimulate CD14 production in liver cells and...

    Abstract: We compared indomethacin-induced gastric damage in three groups of rats--bile duct-ligated, shamoperated, and unoperated--and evaluated the role of the opioid system by blocking the effects of endogenous opioids with naloxone. Indomethacin was administered orally in a dose-dependent...
