Abstract

Background/Aims: An adequate model to study liver regeneration in humans is presently unavailable. We explored the feasibility of studying liver regeneration in a genetically similar species to man, the non-human primate Rhesus macaque. Methods: Five animals were studied; two underwent 60% hepatectomy, one underwent 30% hepatectomy, and cholecystectomy alone was performed on two animals. Laparoscopic-guided or open liver biopsies were performed on days 1, 2, 7, 14, 21, 30 and 60 following all surgeries. Liver regeneration was evaluated by measuring Ki-67, proliferating cell nuclear antigen expression and mitotic index, calculating changes in the surface area of the liver remnant and assessing intrahepatic production of cytokines. Results: Significant liver regeneration was induced in the animals that underwent 60% hepatectomy, peaking between days 21-30 postoperatively. Regeneration was minimal in all other animals studied. Cytokine production followed a similar pattern. Maximal liver regeneration correlated with restoration of surface area in the liver remnant. Conclusions: Sixty percent hepatectomy in a non-human primate model induced significant liver regeneration, maximizing 21-30 days following partial hepatectomy, suggesting a significant interspecies difference when compared to a rodent hepatectomy model. A partial hepatectomy model in Rhesus macaques may allow further characterization of liver regeneration in a species closer to humans.
