Abstract

Objective: Our aim was to investigate 70% partial hepatectomy (PH) groups, compare with not subjected to PH groups after exposure to hepatotoxic agents for alterations in the protective effects of antioxidant agents and sensitivity of the liver. Accordingly, we aimed to investigate the toxicity of a hepatotoxic agent, carbon tetrachloride (CCl4), and protective effects of an antioxidant, N-acetylcysteine (NAC), in experimental animal model.
