BACKGROUND & AIMS Alcoholic hepatitis (AH) is characterized by hepatocellular damage, inflammation, and fibrosis. We performed a prospective study to associate hepatic expression of the CXC subfamily of chemokines with histology findings and prognosis of patients with AH. METHODS Liver biopsy samples from 105 patients with AH and 5 normal liver samples (controls) were evaluated for steatosis, inflammation, fibrosis, and cholestasis. Computer-based morphometric analysis assessed the numbers of… CONTINUE READING
