Diagnostic Value of Ascitic Fluid Homocysteine and Calprotectin in  Cirrhotic Patients with Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIM: Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is mainly diagnosed by ascitic polymorphonuclear (PMNL) leukocyte greater than 250/mm3. We intended to assess ascitic homocysteine and calprotectin for SBP diagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In our study, we collected ascitic fluids from 70 patients with liver cirrhosis (46 SBP plus 24 non-SBP according to PMNL>250 cells/mm3). Complete blood count, alanine aminotransferase, ... Read more

Evaluation of Aspartate Aminotransferase Platelets Ratio Index (APRI) and FIB-4 as Non Invasive Predictors of Hepatic Fibrosis in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis C
OBJECTIVES: This study aims to assess simple models from routine investigation for prediction of significant fibrosis (Ishak score > 2) and cirrhosis in CHC patients PATIENTS AND METHOD: Our retrospective cohort study studied 100 chronic HCV patients that had liver biopsy. Two indices were assessed, aspartate aminotransferase platelets ratio index (APRI) and FIB-4 to predict significant fibrosis and cirrhosis. RESULT: ... Read more
