Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Reparative processes were studied in bioptic specimens of liver taken from 257 patients with acute or chronic liver diseases. Figures of mitosis, binuclear and polyploid hepatocytes served as criteria of regeneration. Intensive reparative processes that remarkably surpass the physiological regeneration of the organ were shown in various liver diseases. Intracellular regeneration was the leading process. This causes the compensation organ function.
