The Liver: Morphology, Biochemistry, Physiology, Volume II provides a comprehensive information on the liver under normal and pathological conditions, as revealed by physiological and morphological studies. This book discusses the excretory function of the liver cell, the physiology of the Kupffer cells, and the link of the liver with endocrine organs, blood, and vitamins. Organized into 15 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the formation and excretion of bile acids. This text then examines the various aspects associated with liver regeneration. Other chapters describe the liver function tests and the methods of experimental surgery. This book discusses as well the pathological changes responsible for the bleeding tendency of patients with liver disease. The final chapter deals with the general and experimental pathology of the organ and its regeneration, as well as with the problem of necrotropic substances. This book is a valuable resource for biochemists, pharmacologists, morphologists, and clinicians.
