Core Tip Herbal treatment is the mother of modern medicine. The ancient habit of treating diseases with plants still goes on as either primary or complementary to conventional medical treatment. The other side of medallion is the fact that the liver is number one target organ for herbal toxicity. Furthermore, liver has been recently defined as an active organ of immune system, which have central regulatory role on innate and adaptive immune response. The delicate homeostasis between immediate and efficient defense against threats (immune surveilance of antigens) without triggering harmful immune response towards self-structures (periferal immune tolerance to self antigens) is controled by liver. Herbal formulas are not a single plant extract, but is an interacting mixture of ingredients that determines the final clinical outcome as therapeutic and hepatotoxic effect. This review aimed to drive attention on both potentials of herbals from the point of immunology, in order to initiate a motivation for feature studies defining the mechanisms of immunological interaction between herbals and liver.
