The immunopathology of AIH indicates a predominance of CD4 Th1 effects and CD8 CTL activity along with activation of macrophages and plasma cells secreting IgG. Abbreviations: Th0 naïve CD4 T helper cell, Th1 CD4 T helper 1 cell, Th2 CD4 T helper 2 cell, Th17 CD4 T helper 17 cell, IL interleukin, CTL CD8 cytotoxic T lymphocyte, NK natural killer cell, MAC activated macrophage, B activated B cell secreting immunoglobulin, C’ complement, ADCC antibody directed cellular cytotoxicity, ICs immune complexes Treg Deficiencies The hallmarks of autoimmunity are genetic susceptibility for reactions against autoantigens and failure of Tregs to maintain tolerance to autoantigens [5, 95].

FoxP3 expression, the key determinant of natural Tregs, is subject to epigenetic control, which allows altered gene programs to be inherited by progeny cells [140]. Whether epigenetics contributes to dysfunction of Tregs associated with AIH is unknown. In theory, each TCR is expressed by both T cells capable of becoming effector cells as well as natural Tregs capable of suppressing each antigen-specific activated effector cell. From birth onward, the interplay between innate and adaptive immune responses to environmental stimuli of PAMPs and DAMPs [124] molds unique immune repertoires, even in monozygotic twins.

PDCs produce large amounts of IFNa(alpha)/b(beta)/g(gamma) and proinflammatory cytokines TNFa(alpha) and IL-6 involved in autoimmune diseases [151]. A subset of hepatic DCs in mice, referred to a liver regulatory DCs (LRDCs), can inhibit CD4 T cell proliferation through expression of CD274 (PD-L-1) and secretion of prostaglandin E2 and IFNg [152]. Infused LRDCs effectively inhibited AIH in a murine model, indicating a capacity for intrahepatic homing and immunoregulation. No human counterparts of LRDCs have been reported.
