Abstract

Background. Angiogenesis has an important role in liver regeneration. Antiangiogenic response in remnant liver following resection and its relationship to regeneration is not well known. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of hepatectomy size on serum endostatin levels, and the effect of endostatin levels to liver regeneration after partial hepatectomy in normal and cirrhotic mice.
