Immune dysregulations, including cytokines and chemokines secretions occurs in alcoholic liver disease. Serum levels and liver expression of CCL2 are increased in patients with alcoholic hepatitis but the role of this chemokine in the pathogenesis of alcoholic liver disease is nevertheless unknown. The aim of the study is to analyze plasma level and liver expression of CCL2 and their relation with liver disease severity and inflammatory infiltrate in our cohort of alcoholic patients. We studied also the association between -2518 CCL2 polymorphism and the severity of alcoholic liver disease.

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.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER due to ALCOHOL ABUSE. It is characterized by NECROSIS of HEPATOCYTES, infiltration by NEUTROPHILS, and deposit of Mallory hyaline bodies. Depending on its severity, the inflammatory lesion may be reversible or progress to LIVER CIRRHOSIS.
