Liver plays a key role in immunity against various microbes and toxins. This is evident by the fact that there is decreased opsonic/complement activity, faulty polymorphonuclear leucocyte function and diminished cell-mediated and humoral immunity in liver failure.

Keywords: Immune System


Hepatic-veno-occlusive is a type of disease with immunodeficiency is a genetic disorder of the liver and immune system. Its signs and symptoms emerge after the first few months of life. Hepatic veno-occlusive disease is a condition that wedges (occludes) small veins in the liver, disrupting blood flow in this organ. This condition can lead to expansion of the liver (hepatomegaly), a increase of scar tissue (hepatic fibrosis), and liver failure. Veno occlusive disease consequences from mutations in the SP110 gene

This gene provides instructions for making a protein called SP110 nuclear body protein, which is intricated in the normal function of the immune system

The immune system plays a double role in the pathogenesis of cirrhosis such that, In addition to it, the role of immune-mediated inflammatory mechanisms, cirrhosis itself also escorts to immune system dysfunction

The liver synchronizes homeostasis of the immune system through two mechanisms. First, it plays a role in immune surveillance, safeguarding against blood-borne pathogens through its double blood supply, thereby avoiding the systemic escalate of microbial and dietary antigens arriving from the gut

This function of the liver is counterbalanced by the local immune tolerance to non-pathogenic extracellular material

The liver contains populations of both inhabitant and transiting T and B lymphocytes disbanded throughout the parenchyma and the portal tracts that are important in the protecting adaptive immune response. Further, the liver is enhanced in natural killer (NK) cells and atypical lymphocytes (natural killer T and γδ T cells), which have characters in innate immune responses of the liver

In addition, liver cells express different membrane-bound or cytoplasmic PRRs, which acknowledges different bacterial and viral molecules. These involves cell surface and endosomal toll-like receptors(TLRs), cytoplasmic nucleotide-irrevocable oligomerization realm (NOD)-like receptors (NLRs), and RNA helicases

The human liver is usually distinguished as a non-immunological organ engaged primarily in metabolic, nutrient deposit and detoxification activities

nevertheless, we now know that the healthy liver is also a site of complex immunological activity moderated by a diverse immune cell reserved as well as non-hematopoietic cell populations. In the non-diseased liver, metabolic and tissue remodeling functions essential elements of inflammation. The human liver is classically discerned as a non-immunological organ, required for metabolic activities, nutrient depository and decontamination
