Table 1 Body parameters. Initial body weight (IBW), final body weight (FBW), body weight increase (BWI), liver weight (LW) and liver weight/body weight ratio (LW/FBW) in control rats and in rats with portacaval shunt (PCS) at 4 weeks of evolution.

From: Plasma redox status is impaired in the portacaval shunted rat – the risk of the reduced antioxidant ability
