    Overproduction of heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) in the liver protects hepatocytes under various pathologic conditions. In this study we examined the effects of a nontoxic HSP70 inducer, geranylgeranylacetone (GGA), on acute hepatic failure after 95% hepatectomy in rats. When GGA (100 mg/kg) or...

    Background: Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is a potential threat to the integrity of the gastric mucosa and is known to contribute to upper abdominal pain. We have previously found that gastric mucosal challenge with excess HCl is signalled to the rat brainstem, but not spinal cord, as...
