In Non-alcoholic fatty (NAFLD) liver disease patients, the investigators hypothesized that rifaximin might act on Gram-negative bacteria and IBO thereby inhibiting LPS-mediated proinflammatory cytokine production. This work evaluates the efficacy of 6 months administration of rifaximin in NAFLD patients.
The investigators aimed to study the effect of rifaximin on NAFLD. 126 patients with biopsy-proven NAFLD [42 steatosis, 84 non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)] were enrolled in this open-label, prospective, multicentric cohort study. BMI, AST, ALT, gamma glutamyl transferase (γ-GGT), lipid profile, homeostatic model assessment (HOMA), serum endotoxin, Toll-like receptor 4 (TlR4), interleukin-6 (IL-6), IL-10, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and cytokeratin-18 (CK-18) levels were measured before and after a 6 month administration of rifaximin (1100-1200 mg/day).

This multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study will evaluate the change in liver fat content, pharmacokinetics and safety of RO5093151 in patients with non-alcoholic...
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a leading cause of chronic liver disease and can lead to cirrhosis, hepatocellular cancer and end stage liver disease. It is also associated with increased cardiov...
This study evaluates long-term outcomes and body mass index (BMI) following liver transplantation (LT) for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in comparison with alcoholic liver disease (ALD).
With the advent and subsequent success of antiretroviral therapy, HIV infection has largely become a chronic condition and is increasingly seen alongside metabolic disorders such as dyslipidemia and i...
The pathogenesis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has not been well recognized yet.

Lipid infiltration of the hepatic parenchymal cells that is due to ALCOHOL ABUSE. The fatty changes in the alcoholic fatty liver may be reversible, depending on the amounts of TRIGLYCERIDES accumulated.
Liver diseases associated with ALCOHOLISM. It usually refers to the coexistence of two or more subentities, i.e., ALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER; ALCOHOLIC HEPATITIS; and ALCOHOLIC CIRRHOSIS.
Fatty liver finding without excessive ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION.
Lipid infiltration of the hepatic parenchymal cells resulting in a yellow-colored liver. The abnormal lipid accumulation is usually in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES, either as a single large droplet or multiple small droplets. Fatty liver is caused by an imbalance in the metabolism of FATTY ACIDS.
Cytoplasmic hyaline inclusions in HEPATOCYTES. They are associated with ALCOHOLIC STEATOHEPATITIS and non-alcoholic STEATOHEPATITIS, but are also present in benign and malignant hepatocellular neoplasms, and metabolic, toxic, and chronic cholestatic LIVER DISEASES.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
Cytokine Tumour Necrosis Factor (TNF)
TNF is a compound that is classified as a cytokine which plays a central role in the cellular mechanisms of apoptosis or cell death. However, there are a number of different kinds of TNF, just under twenty, but the family of molecules have very similar a...
