Methods The serum levels of PA, CHE, albumin(ALB), globulin(GLB), and total bile acid(TBA) were measured in 80 patients with liver cirrhosis and 60 normal controls with the AU-640 system, and the data were compared and analyzed for their diagnostic values in liver cirrhosis.
No primary failure of vascular or biliary complications occurred.
The aim of this article was to study the influence of immunity function of advanced malignant obstructive jaundice (MOJ) treated by percutaneous transhepatic biliary external and internal drainage.
Ninety-six cases of MOJ were divided into two groups according to the different ways of biliary drainage.
Fifty-two external drainage tubes were placed in 41 cases of percutaneous transhepatic biliary external drainage group and 66 metal stents were placed in 55 cases of percutaneous transhepatic biliary internal drainage group.
Percutaneous transhepatic biliary internal or external drainage was an effective and important method to treat MOJ.
Hyocholic acid amounted to 39.6%, hyodeoxycholic acid to 31 %, and chenodeoxycholic acid to 27.6% of total bile acids in the small intestine when casein was fed.
The effluent is introduced directly into the ELSD for determination of the total bile-acid content of the sample.
Itching scores, serum ALT and total bile acids (TBA) were measured before, during and after treatment.
This reduction in the bile acid-independent fraction could, however, not be demonstrated when cyclosporin was given to a group of liver-transplanted rats, although a reduced total bile flow was recorded in the 1st hour measurements.
Bilirubin glucuronides, which were not detectable in the bile from untreated Gunn rats, appeared in considerable amounts 4 months after HCTx and FLTx (27.5% and 36.0% of total bile, respectively).
The presence of prolactin receptor and peculiarities of its isoform expression in bile duct cells (cholangiocytes) differentially isolated from rat liver under different conditions were investigated in the present study.
Change in bile composition during gallstone formation in gerbils
The change in bile composition accompanying gallstone formation was found to consist of an increase of the cholesterol fraction at the expense of the bile acid fraction of the total sum of bile acids and lipids.
Animal experiments suggest that supplementing the diet with either psyllium seed husk or lignin alters the ratio of deoxycholic acid to chenodeoxycholic in bile.
On diets containing cottonseed protein the concentrations of both cholesterol and phospholipids in bile fluid are significantly decreased.
