Özet

Background: Peroxisome proliferators-activated receptor alpha ( PPAR alpha) activation modulates cholesterol metabolism and suppresses bile acid synthesis. This study aims to evaluate the effect of short-term administration of fenofibrate, a PPAR alpha agonist, on proinflammatory cytokines, apoptosis, and hepatocellular damage in cholestasis.
