Life Stage Applicability
Key Event Relationship Description
Logically when liver tissue is degraded, the liver will fail to execute its function. Again, this can be tissue type dependent(Krishna 2017)
Evidence Collection Strategy
Evidence Supporting this KER
Necrotic tissue is frequently observed in liver disease, e.g. a failing liver.
(Guicciardi et al. 2013): Apoptosis and necrosis in the liver.
(Luedde et al. 2014): Cell death in liver disease.
(Krishna 2017): Patterns of Necrosis in Liver disease.
(Malhi et al. 2006): Apoptosis and necrosis in the liver (including TNF signaling (NFkB and Caspase8) part)
