Excerpt: Alcohol-induced fatty liver disease (AFLD), a leading cause of liver related mortalities, is an increasing public health concern resulting from excessive alcohol intake. C1q TNF Related Protein 3 (CTRP3), a novel adipokine, has been demonstrated to prevent diet-induced fatty liver disease by acting directly on liver cells to increase lipid oxidation, reduce lipid synthesis, and ultimately protect the cells from alcohol-induced damage/death.
