Animal Models in Liver Research
This volume is a comprehensive survey and update of liver models used today by researchers on animal and human liver function and disease. Important topics of animal research that are in this book and that have leadto breakthroughs in understanding human disease include cholesteral and bile pigment gallstones; alcoholic hepatopathy; neonatal jaundice; and kernicterus. The books contains a wide variety of animal models, including squirrel monkeys, gunn rats, lampres, horses, and chickens, to make this a truly comparative synthesis.
