Neuroinflammation in liver disease: sessional talks from ISHEN Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • At the recent ISHEN ('International Symposium of Hepatic Encephalopathy & Nitrogen Metabolism') conference in London, a whole session was dedicated to our increasing awareness of the importance of inflammation in the brain - termed 'neuroinflammation', in the development of Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE) - the neurological manifestations of advanced liver disease. In this review our ISHEN speakers further discuss the content of their sessional presentations and more broadly we discuss our understanding of the role of neuroinflammation in HE pathogenesis.
