Dr K. Kaestner will introduce his studies about Liver repopulation following toxic liver injury during Targeting Liver Diseases

Kaestner

Prior research on hepatocyte proliferation has focused on the easily accessible paradigm of partial hepatectomy, which does not model the regenerative response of hepatocytes following toxic injury, such as occurs following alcohol or acetaminophen poisoning.

During Targeting Liver Diseases World Congress 2014 which be held in Jerusalem next June 26-27, 2014, Dr Klaus Kaestner from University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, USA, will explain how to address this knowledge gap, by having developed an innovative model system to identify and rank by impact the genes that control hepatocyte proliferation in the context of toxic liver damage.
