Core Tip A “leaky gut” may be the cutting edge for the passage of toxins, antigens or bacteria into the body, and may play a pathogenic role in advanced liver cirrhosis and its complications. More attention should be paid to the role of intestinal bacteria and bacterial products in the field of Hepatology. Here, I would like to overview the history of endotoxin assay in the blood, clinical significance of endotoxemia in liver cirrhosis and then shift to the topic of gut and liver in general. Understanding of the gut-liver axis, leaky gut and endotoxemia in cirrhosis may give us new ideas.
