Interleukin-1 and tumour necrosis factor-alpha activities by E. coli lipopolysaccharide-triggered monocytes were studied in patients with chronic alcoholic liver disease. Monocytes from cirrhotic patients were shown to have significantly reduced IL-1 and TNF-a activities, compared with that from age and sex matched healthy controls. These findings indicate further immunoregulatory disturbances concerning alcoholic liver cirrhosis.
