Intolerance of the liver to ischemic damage has been documented. Ischemia damage could be an important reason for graft failure. This study was designed to evaluate a potential protective effect of inosine administration on ischemic rat liver cell in comparison with Eurocollins perfusion. If this effect can be demonstrated, inosine could be proven to be of particular value in liver transplantation where the limited period of viability after removal of the organ from the donor is a major factor restricting the diffusion of this surgical procedure.
