Moreover, these mice were found to be capable of developing biliary fibrosis at 4-8 weeks and HCC at 4-6 months (84).
The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential of AM on the biliary fibrosis when applied to the surface of the liver at the same time of the fibrotic stimulus and maintained fora 9-week period.
Therefore, the current study objective was ultrastructural analysis of the multipotential population of HPCs, including their relations with adherent hepatic nonparenchymal cells (NPCs), especially HSCs/myofibroblasts in the course of periportal fibroductular reaction in the model of biliary fibrosis in young rats caused by bile duct ligation.
In this study we compared one of the standard models of liver fibrosis based on C[Cl.sub.4] intoxication with ATP-binding cassette transporter B4 knockout ([Abcb4.sup.-/-]) mice, which develop sclerosing cholangitis and biliary fibrosis very similar to PSC in humans, in regard to tissue relaxation times assessed by MRR methods.
(4) Progressive biliary fibrosis and cirrhosis are encountered more often as the median survival age has increased.
