Special Issue Information

Dear Colleague,

Chronic liver diseases (CLD) include alcoholic liver disease (ALD), non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), chronic viral infection, autoimmune hepatitis, etc., which may lead to liver fibrosis, cirrhosis, and cancer. Currently, there are no effective treatments for ALD-induced liver cancer. Liver inflammation, oxidative stress, and cell death are commonly associated with the progression of CLD. Recent studies have shown that anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents are promising therapies against CLD. In addition, metabolic dysfunctions such as lipid accumulation and insulin resistance are commonly associated with CLD-to-cancer progression, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and cholangiocarcinoma (CC). Therefore, it is essential to understand the underlying molecular and metabolic signaling pathways involved in the pathogenesis of CLD and target these pathways to develop therapeutic strategies to ameliorate CLD. This Special Issue, entitled “Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Agents in Chronic Liver Diseases”, aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the most recent advances in this field and explore the current options and future research directions for CLD studies.
