Kupffer cells hasten resolution of liver immunopathology in mouse models of viral hepatitis.
... e1002061 Kupffer Cells Resolve Liver Immunopathology Author Summary Kupffer cells (KCs), the resident macrophages of the liver, are considered important contributors to liver injury during viral hepatitis due to their pro-inflammatory activity. Herein we utilized two different mouse models of viral hepatitis (where liver damage is triggered, as during ... virus-specific CD8 T cells) to show that KCs do not directly induce liver injury nor do they affect the pathogenic potential of virusspecific CD8 T cells. Instead, KCs limit the severity of liver immunopathology. Mechanistically, our results are most compatible with the hypothesis that KCs contain liver immunopathology by removing dying hepatocytes. Dying hepatocytes ... production of this proinflammatory soluble mediator. As mentioned earlier, liver disease in this model is transient because IFN-c-dependent mechanisms rapidly eliminate viral gene products from the liver [17,25,27]. Accordingly, viral DNA, RNA and proteins disappeared from the liver of saline- and Clo-Ltreated mice with comparable kinetics (not shown
Generalized Liver- and Blood-Derived CD8+ T-Cell Impairment in Response to Cytokines in Chronic Hepatitis C Virus Infection.
... contribution of liver- infiltrating CD8+ T-cells to the immunopathogenesis of this infection remain poorly understood. It is hypothesized that this impairment is partially due to reduced CD8+ T-cell activity in response to cytokines such as IL-7, particularly within the liver. To investigate this, the phenotype and cytokine responsiveness of blood- and liver- derived ... of Bcl-2 following IL7 stimulation was also lower in HCV infection and inversely related to the degree of liver fibrosis. In liver- derived CD8+ T-cells, STAT5 activation could not be increased with cytokine stimulation and basal Bcl-2 levels of liver- derived CD8+ T-cells were lower than bloodderived counterparts in HCV infection. Therefore, generalized ... observed in both circulating and liver- infiltrating CD8+ T-cells. This was a challenging study, as the relatively low number of IH-CD8+ T-cells in a liver biopsy of an HCV-infected individual limited the breadth of these investigations. In addition, the recent increased use of elastography diagnostics (i.e. fibroscan), instead of liver biopsies, has significantly

Moreover, the liver tissues of ACLF patients exhibited a much ... exhibited a much higher expression level of IL-23 over that in CHB livers (Figure 1A and B). The high IL-23 expression in the livers of CHB and ACLF patients was further confirmed by in situ immunohistochemistry assay.

To further confirm the source cell type of IL-23, we performed immunofluorescence staining on liver tissues from patients with hepatitis B.
