Alcohol can disrupt many immune pathways in complex ways, thereby impeding the body’s ability to defend against infection, contribute to organ damage associated with alcohol consumption, and impede recovery from tissue injury.

The effects of alcohol on the immune system involve various types of immune cells and their interactions which are partly mediated by cytokines, chemokines and other chemical messengers.

Alcohol–immune interactions may affect the development and progression of certain types of cancers, communication between the gut microbiota and the intestinal immune system, hepatic hepatitis and cirrhosis, as well as being involved in microglial activation with the resultant brain damage.
