Abstract

Background and Aims: We recently demonstrated that norUDCA reverses sclerosing cholangitis and biliary fibrosis in $Mdr2^{-/-}$ mice (Fickert et al., Gastroenterology 2006) and hypothesized that its therapeutic efficacy may be critically related to its relative resistance against taurine- and glycin-conj ugation resulting in cholehepatic shunting and bicarbonate-rich hypercholeresis (Hofmann et al., Hepatology, 2005). Therefore we aimed to compare the therapeutic mechanisms and effects of norUDCA and its taurine conjugate (TnorUDCA) in the $Mdr2^{-/-}$ model for sclerosing cholangitis.
