Serum Leptin, Ferritin and Uric Acid as Predictors of Fibrosis and Sustained Virological Response in Chronic Hepatitis C Patients
Hyperleptinemia, hyperferritinemia and hyperuricemia have been implicated in hepatic inflammation and fibrosis and assumed to be predictors of poor response to antiviral therapy. The aim of study was to evaluate the role of serum leptin, ferritin and uric acid in progression of chronic hepatitis C (CHC) disease and their role in detection of virological response to combined antiviral therapy (pegylated ...
