As a result of research it was succeeded to receive the model of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis which is characterized by obesity, violation of the structural organization, a fabric necrosis, formation of fibrosis of a liver. The developed model of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis allows to study also staging of development of a fatty desease of the liver which is characterized by formation of a steatogepatitis and fibrosis. In quality the inducing factors the high-fat diet and antibiotics were used. The offered NASH model can be used in the field of chronic experiments for an assessment of extent of violation of a functional condition of hepatobiliary system and for search of the effective pharmacotheurapeutichepatoprotective agents.
