Long-term alcohol abuse (see alcoholic liver disease).

Disorders of the drainage system of the liver (the biliary system).

Hepatitis B.

Hepatitis C.

Medications.

Metabolic disorders of iron and copper (hemochromatosis and Wilson’s disease)

Stem Cell Therapy for Liver Cirrhosis
Stem cells are known to have a tangible application in Liver Cirrhosis. This can be observed in the following published literature:

World Journal of Stem Cells

National Center for Biotechnology Information

World Journal of Stem Cells

As observed in the above literature, the improvement can be depicted by normalization of deranged liver enzymes and sonography. Anemia, ascites, esophageal varices, and any other condition related to liver damage may also potentially improve substantially with improvement in liver architecture due to the infused stem cells.
