Abstract: Inflammation and oxidative stress contribute to the progression of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Hepatic fibrosis and activated hepatic stellate cells (Ac-HSCs) are attenuated by Angiotensin-II type 1 Receptor Blocker (ARB), and L-carnitine is effective for NASH by ameliorating oxidative stress, but neither agent is effective in a clinical setting. We evaluated the effect of the combination of L-carnitine and ARB on liver fibrosis using a rat NASH model. A Choline-Deficient/L-Amino Acid-defined (CDAA) diet was fed to F344 rats for 8 weeks. The rats were then divided into a control group, group receiving L-carnitine or ARB alone, and group receiving L-carnitine plus ARB. Therapeutic efficacy was assessed by evaluating liver fibrosis, liver fatty acid metabolism, and oxidative stress. ARB inhibited liver-specific tumor necrotic factor-α and LPS-binding protein, which are involved in hepatic inflammation. L-Carnitine reduced hepatic oxidative stress by rescuing hepatic sterol-regulatory elementbinding protein 1 and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances induced by the CDAA diet. Combination of L-carnitine and ARB improved liver fibrosis, with concomitant HSC suppression. Therefore, we suggest that L-carnitine and ARB are effective in suppressing liver fibrosis. Currently both drugs are in clinical use, and a combination of the two could be an effective therapy for NASH fibrosis.
