Summary of "Chemical induced inflammation of the liver breaks tolerance and results in autoimmune hepatitis in Balb/c mice."

Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a chronic liver disease mediated by immunity, and could lead to liver fibrosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. However, the mechanisms for breaking hepatic tolerance and driving AIH still remain elusive. We herein reported that the non-specific liver inflammation triggered by carbon tetrachloride (CCl) recruited high numbers of CD4 + T, CD8 + T and B cells, and elevated the expression of proinflammaitory cytokines in Balb/c mice, further breaking liver tolerance and inducing autoimmune response, AIH inflammation and liver fibrosis in the presence of CYP2D6 antigen mimicry. In contrast, adenovirus infection could not break liver tolerance and induce AIH in Balb/c mice even in the presence of CYP2D6 antigen mimicry. These results suggested that genetic predisposition could determine liver tolerance in Balb/c mice. The chemical induced inflammation in the liver breaks tolerance and might be considered important for the initiation and development of AIH in Balb/c mice.

Red blood cell distribution width for predicting significant liver inflammation in patients with autoimmune hepatitis.

Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) was reported to be associated with the severity of liver diseases. We aimed to investigate the association between RDW and severity of liver inflammation in aut...

Chalcone Derivative L6H21 Reduces EtOH+LPS-induced Liver Injury through Inhibition of NLRP3 Inflammasome Activation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A spectrum of clinical liver diseases ranging from mild biochemical abnormalities to ACUTE LIVER FAILURE, caused by drugs, drug metabolites, herbal and dietary supplements and chemicals from the environment.

The normal lack of the ability to produce an immunological response to autologous (self) antigens. A breakdown of self tolerance leads to autoimmune diseases. The ability to recognize the difference between self and non-self is the prime function of the immune system.

Liver disease lasting six months or more, caused by an adverse effect of a drug or chemical. The adverse effect may be caused by drugs, drug metabolites, chemicals from the environment, or an idiosyncratic response.

Inflammation of the PERICARDIUM from various origins, such as infection, neoplasm, autoimmune process, injuries, or drugs-induced. Pericarditis usually leads to PERICARDIAL EFFUSION, or CONSTRICTIVE PERICARDITIS.

The ability of some cells or tissues to withstand ionizing radiation without serious injury. Tolerance depends on the species, cell type, and physical and chemical variables, including RADIATION-PROTECTIVE AGENTS and RADIATION-SENSITIZING AGENTS.
