Provides a comprehensive account of the pathophysiology of hepatic veno-occlusive disease (VOD), the risk factors for its development and the preventive and therapeutic options. Linkage of the disease to the ingestion of pyrrolizidine alkaloids contained in Senecio tea; Role of coagulation pathways in the pathophysiology of VOD.

    Plants produce a diversity of secondary metabolites (SMs) to protect them from generalist herbivores. On the other hand, specialist herbivores use SMs for host plant recognition, feeding and oviposition cues, and even sequester SMs for their own defense. Therefore, plants are assumed to face an...
