|Abstract||Acute hepatic insufficiency (AHF) is one of the major challenges of intensive care medicine. Liver transplantation is the current solution to unsuccessful medical management. Owing to the lack of organ donors, other methods such as hepatocyte transplantation (HcTX) and bioartificial livers need to be explored. The aim of our experimental study is to evaluate the effect of hepatocyte transplantation on the survival in AHF animals intoxicated with D-Galactosamine (D-Gal).|
