BACKGROUND Chronic alcohol ingestion leads to endotoxemia which is believed to play an important role in the pathogenesis of alcoholic liver disease (ALD). The purpose of this study was to determine if chronic ethanol consumption, in addition to affecting plasma endotoxin and cytokines, also affects the endotoxin-neutralizing capacity (ENC), sCD14, and sICAM-1, in patients with ALD. A second aim was to identify correlations between these latter parameters, endotoxin, and cytokines, especially… CONTINUE READING
