ABSTRACT— Interleukin‐1 and tumor necrosis factor‐alpha activity by E. coli lipopolysaccharide‐triggered monocytes were studied in patients with chronic alcoholic liver disease. Monocytes from cirrhotic patients were shown to have a significant reduction in IL‐1 and TNF‐a activity, compared with that from age‐ and sex‐matched healthy controls. These findings indicate further immunoregulatory disturbances concerning alcoholic liver cirrhosis.
