Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) mediates alcohol-induced organ dysfunction, including alcoholic hepatitis. Variations in the TNF-alpha gene may underlie the individual predisposition to alcoholic liver disease. Measurement of serum TNF-alpha levels has become a routine in clinical practice. The study was aimed at investigating the level of serum TNF-alpha levels in adults and analyzing its relationship with different levels of alcohol consumption, as well as the potential interaction… CONTINUE READING
