Comparative study of amino acid, ammonia and pancreatic hormone levels in the blood of cirrhotic patients following intragastric and intravenous administration of a branched-chain amino acid-enriched solution



Comparative study of amino acid, ammonia and pancreatic hormone levels in the blood of cirrhotic patients following intragastric and intravenous administration of a branched-chain amino acid-enriched solution



Acta Medica Okayama 37(5): 441-445



The blood values for amino acids, ammonia and pancreatic hormones after the intragastric and intravenous administration of a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA)-enriched solution were compared in control subjects and patients with liver cirrhosis. There was no essential difference in the time course of serum amino acid and blood ammonia values between the intragastric and intravenous infusions.
