Abstract

Background and objective: Nitric oxide and reactive oxygen species have been implicated in several pathophysiological events leading to fibrosis and cirrhosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate the possible contribution of peroxynitrite (formed by the interaction of nitric oxide and superoxide anion) in the pathophysiology of cirrhosis.
