Hyaluronic acid is studied as a non-invasive marker of liver fibrosis in chronic liver diseases, in an attempt to avoid the complications of(More)
INTRODUCTION Romania is part of the countries with low incidence of esophagus cancer (the mortality rate M/W at 100,000 peoples being 1.6/0.3), but the diagnosis of the disease, is most frequently incidental in stages that make any intention of radical treatment a desideratum frequently unattainable.
