  • Combination treatment significantly enhanced TCE-induced liver injury, decreased complement 3, but increased C3a in serum and liver tissues in sensitization group. (surrey.ac.uk)
  • These data provide first evidence that poly(I:C) potentiates liver injury in BALB/c mouse model of TCE-sensitization. (surrey.ac.uk)
  • Upregulated C3a and factor B contributes to the poly(I:C) action in TCE-induced liver injury. (surrey.ac.uk)
  • A similar rise in the frequency of reports of HDS-associated liver injury comes from Iceland, Europe, and Asia. (nih.gov)
  • The liver injury from HDS presents many clinical and research challenges. (nih.gov)
  • The major aims of the symposium are to set a research agenda for better elucidation of the frequency, epidemiology, clinical features, outcomes, consequences, mechanisms, and means of treatment or prevention of liver injury associated with HDS. (nih.gov)
