However, IL-18 may act as an autocrine for skewing prolonged IL-18 secretion in DCs. They concluded that IL-18 induced differentiation of CD4+ T into Th1 cells and CD8+ cells into effector T cells, following CXCR3-CXCL9 axis-dependent migration of these cells to the liver which induce fatal progression of autoimmune hepatitis [65] (Fig. 3). In addition, they showed that although corticosteroid therapy was effective for autoimmune hepatitis in mice, it allows residual splenic dysregulated TFH cells to remain after treatment, which appear to be responsible for relapse.

The splenectomy-induced increase in hepatic arterial flow with increased oxygen supply is also suggested to induce liver regeneration [49]. It is noteworthy that other spleen-derived factors such as hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) activatorinhibitor (HAI) and ET-1 also impair liver regeneration in cirrhotic liver. Furthermore, Lee et al. [21] reported that splenectomy-induced upregulation of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and downregulation of TGF beta-1 in the injured liver. TGF beta-receptor II was more highly expressed in the injured liver, and c-Met, a HGF receptor, was more highly expressed in the injured liver with splenectomy.

Subsequently, simple steatosis progresses to NASH [6, 7]. Currently, NAFLD is considered by some a pathogenetically “multiple-hit” disease [8]. The gut-liver axis has attracted much interest in the context of NAFLD pathogenesis [9]. The gut microbiota consists of about 1014 microorganisms that live in a symbiotic relationship with the host and is influenced by several factors such as diet, age, antibiotic therapy, hygienic habit, and infection. These intestinal bacteria produce endotoxin, which reaches the liver and is phagocyted by Kupffer cells.
