Liver Systems Medicine : striving to develop non-invasive methods for diagnosing and treating NAFLD by combining mathematical modeling and biological research. LiSyM, is a multidisciplinary research network, in which molecular and cell biologists, clinical researchers, pharmacologists and experts in mathematical modeling examine the liver in its entirety. LiSyM research focuses on the metabolic liver disease non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which includes non-alcoholic steatohepatitis ...
Projects: LiSyM Core Infrastructure and Management (LiSyM-PD), LiSyM Pillar I: Early Metabolic Injury (LiSyM-EMI), LiSyM Pillar II: Chronic Liver Disease Progression (LiSyM-DP), LiSyM Pillar III: Regeneration and Repair in Acute-on-Chronic Liver Failure (LiSyM-ACLF), LiSyM Pillar IV: Liver Function Diagnostics (LiSyM-LiFuDi), Model Guided Pharmacotherapy In Chronic Liver Disease (LiSyM-MGP), Molecular Steatosis - Imaging & Modeling (LiSyM-MSIM), The Hedgehog Signalling Pathway (LiSyM-JGMMS), Multi-Scale Models for Personalized Liver Function Tests (LiSyM-MM-PLF), LiSyM PALs, Project Management PTJ, LiSyM network, LiSyM Scientific Leadership Team (LiSyM-LT)

In chronic diseases, at some point the liver can suddenly stop functioning. This is called acute-on-chronic liver failure, or ACLF. This is the leading cause of death in liver patients and is often provoked by the use of transcription or freely available drugs or alcohol abuse. For this condition we need an effective treatment quickly. LiSyM-Pillar III researches the factors that contribute significantly to ACLF. What exactly happens then? Are there any early signs that would enable ACLF to be ...
In one in five people with NAFLD, the functioning liver cells, the hepatocytes, are replaced by connective tissue. Eventually this fibrosis becomes irreversible. In this state the liver is like a ‘scar that never heals’. Through it, the liver loses many of its vital functions. LiSyM-Pillar II wants to know more about which factors promote fibrosis and the conditions under which fibrosis becomes irreversible How can fibrosis be diagnosed as early as possible? Researchers in the pillar are also ...
One of the tasks of the healthy liver is to store fat. Yet, at some stage, too much fat makes the liver sick. One critical time point occurs when a healthy fatty liver becomes inflamed and progresses to steatohepatitis, or NASH. LiSyM-Pillar I will identify what events lead to this transition. Does it occur in all parts of the liver? Which molecules indicate that it is taking place? Can the degeneration be stopped or undone - and if so, how?
