Ultrastructural changes in mouse liver cells a morphometric study on the influence of morphine heroin and cardiostenol

Ultrastructural changes in mouse liver cells a morphometric study on the influence of morphine heroin and cardiostenol

Journal of Ultrastructure Research 80(2): 123-132

In drug addicts viral hepatitis is more frequent, its course longer and the percentage of chronic complications higher than nonaddicts. Many apparently healthy addicts show evidence of hepatic dysfunction when screened. The role of the drug and its contaminants in this medical situation is not clear. The effect of morphine, heroin and Cardiostenol on normal mouse liver ultrastructure was studied using morphometric methods. A statistically significant increase in volume density and surface density of smooth endoplasmic reticulum was observed.
