Cold Storage of Liver Microorgans in ViaSpan® and BG35 Solutions. Study of Ammonia Metabolism during normothermic reoxygenation
(Mexican Assoc Hepatology, 2014-03)
Introduction: This work focuses on ammonia metabolism of Liver Microorgans (LMOs) after cold preservation in a normothermic reoxygenation system (NRS). We have previously reported the development of a novel preservation ...
Hypothermic Machine Perfusion Versus Cold Storage in the Rescuing of Livers From Non-Heart-Beating Donor Rats
The aim of this work was to compare the effi- ciency of cold storage (CS) and hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) methods of preserving grafts excised from non-heart-beating donors that had suffered 45 minutes of warm ...
The effect of a hydrogen sulfide releasing molecule (Na2S) on the cold storage of livers from cardiac dead donor rats: a study in an ex vivo model
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2015-08)
Liver transplantation is currently the preferred treatment option for end-stage liver disease. Donation after cardiac death was a common practice in the early years of organ donation before brain death criteria were ...
Thyroid hormone in the frontier of cell protection, survival and functional recovery
(Cambridge University Press, 2015)
Thyroid hormone (TH) exerts important actions on cellular energy metabolism, accelerating O-2 consumption with consequent reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and redox signalling affording cell protection, a response ...
