Cirrhosis is condition occurred due to long term malfunctioning of liver. Hepatocytes isolated from cirrhotic liver can help identifying cause of disease, progression disease and in many other conditions. Pathophysiology of liver cirrhosis can be studied using hepatocytes isolated from diseased liver.
