Core Tip Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a chronic liver disease. It has been shown that innate immune activation contributes to the progression of NAFLD by inducing hepatic inflammation. A new study recently demonstrated that hepatocyte mitochondrial DNA acts as a damage -induced molecular pattern activating hepatic TLR9 to initiate and amplify inflammatory signaling leading to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Inhibiting TLR9 by using a synthetic antagonist, IRS 954, reversed steatohepatitis; as did a whole body ablation of TLR9 or a myeloid-specific knockout of TLR9. This editorial summarizes the findings of the new study and describes potential novel therapeutic targets that may hold promise for NASH treatment.
