Aims. Acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) and acute liver failure (ALF) are similar in many respects during their acute exacerbation; however, ACLF generally has a poorer prognosis. We aimed to investigate the role and dynamic changes of regulatory T cell (Treg) and T helper 17 (Th17) cell proportions during ACLF progress. Methods. All rats were(More)

Methods: One hundred and sixty five chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients who had no clear indication for antiviral treatment, and who underwent liver biopsies were included in this study.(More)
Activation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) is a pivotal event during hepatic fibrogenesis. Activated HSCs are the main source of collagen and other extracellular matrix (ECM) components, and emerging antifibrotic therapies are aimed at preventing ECM synthesis and deposition. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been demonstrated to exert regulatory effects on HSC(More)
