Special Issue Information
Chronic liver disease constitutes a growing public health issue worldwide, with no effective treatments currently available. Oxidative stress is considered a major factor in the pathophysiology of chronic liver diseases, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic liver disease (NAFLD). Closely interacting with inflammation, endoplasmic reticulum stress, and impairment of lipid metabolism and autophagy, increased oxidative stress triggers stress pathways in different hepatic cells and fuels the development of liver injury, fibrosis, and carcinogenesis. Therefore, inhibition of reactive oxygen species-mediated effects, and modulation of major antioxidant pathways to counteract oxidative stress-induced damage have emerged as interesting targets to prevent or ameliorate liver injury.
We invite you to submit your latest research findings or a review article to this Special Issue, which will bring together current research concerning alterations of the oxidant/antioxidant balance in liver cell populations contributing to the pathophysiology of chronic liver disease, especially focusing on the development of inflammation and fibrosis. This research topic will discuss preclinical and clinical evidence highlighting the important role of oxidative stress in the progression of chronic liver diseases, as well as its potential as a target to develop safe and effective therapeutic strategies.
