Abstract

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) variants causing human infection predominantly belong to HEV species A (HEV-A). HEV species C genotype 1 (HEV-C1) circulates in rats and is highly divergent from HEV-A. It was previously considered unable to infect humans, but the first case of human HEV-C1 infec...read more

Oxygen Tension in Liver Models

Oxygen tension is determined by the balance between net oxygen entering the system and the consumption of oxygen by cells, which can be affected by cell density and type. For instance, hepatocytes consume higher levels of oxygen compared to endothelial cells. Here is the latest research on oxygen tension in liver models.

CSF & Lymphatic System

This feed focuses on Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) and the lymphatic system. Discover the latest papers using imaging techniques to track CSF outflow into the lymphatic system in animal models.

Meningoencephalitis

Meningoencephalitis, also known as herpes meningoencephalitis, is a medical condition that simultaneously resembles both meningitis, which is an infection or inflammation of the meninges, and encephalitis, which is an infection or inflammation of the brain. Discover the latest research on meningoencephalitis here.

Liver Safety Biomarkers

Biomarkers can help understand chronic diseases and assist in risk prediction for prevention and early detection of diseases. Here is the latest research on liver safety biomarkers.

Hepatitis E

Hepatitis e, caused by infection with hepatitis e virus, is a common cause of enterically-transmitted acute hepatitis in developing countries. Here is the latest research.
