The purpose of this study is to learn more about how the body stores fat in and around organs (ex. the liver) and why this affects some people's health more than others. Understanding this may lead to better treatments for diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
The purpose of this study is to determine the specific cellular and organ system metabolic and immunologic alterations that are associated with insulin resistance and inflammation in order to identify putative mechanisms and novel bio-markers involved in the pathogenesis and progression of inflammatory and cardiometabolic diseases.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) parallels the obesity epidemic and associates with components of the metabolic syndrome (MetS). Cholesterol efflux capacity (CEC) represents a key metric of h...
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...
