OBJECTIVES To examine the feasibility of perflubutane-based ultrasound for grading hepatic fibrosis. METHODS This prospective study included 202 subjects; main study (controls:33, F0-1:35, F2:26, F3:23, cirrhosis:29) and subsequent study (controls:16, F0-1:7, F2:20, F3:7, cirrhosis:6). Diagnostic abilities for assessing fibrosis grade were compared(More)
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) may protect against metabolic diseases. Although the benefits of the n-3 family of PUFA have been well investigated in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), little is known about the effect of the n-6 family.
