Recently, hepatic microcirculation has been focused on as an important pathogenic factor in progression of alcoholic liver disease (ALD). Therefore, blood levels of several prostaglandins, which are associated with organ microcirculation, were determined in various liver diseases, including ALD. Blood thromboxane B2 (TXB2) level was significantly increased in ALD, when compared to other types of liver diseases, whereas both 6-keto prostablandin F (6-keto PGF) and prostaglandin E were not changed. These consequences resulted in the imbalance of 6-keto PGF to TXB2, which might promote platelet aggregation and blood vessel contraction. Indeed, the increase of β-thromboglobulin and platelet factor 4 in boood was observed in ALD. Furthermore, in ALD, the rate of arachidonate-induced platelet aggregation was prominently enhanced, and malondialdehyde production in platelet, which was well correlated with blood TXB2 levels, significantly increased. Thus, the present study may indicate that, in ALD, hyper-aggregability of platelet is produced, because of the derangement of prostaglandin metabolism and platelet dysfunction.
