Abstract

Summary

Blood NH-N, urea, glutamine and keto acids were measured in 29 patients with hepatic fibrosis associated with advanced schistosomiasis and malnutrition. Routine hepatic function tests (BSP clearance, thymol turbidity and bilirubin index) were elevated in all cases. Despite evidence of liver failure and pathologic involvement, none of the biochemical parameters measured were significantly elevated relative to the controls.
