A simple clinical scoring system using ferritin, fasting insulin, and type IV collagen 7S for predicting steatohepatitis in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease


Liver histology is the gold standard for the diagnosis of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Noninvasive, simple, reproducible, and reliable biomarkers are greatly needed to differentiate NASH from nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). To construct a scoring system for predicting NASH, 177 Japanese patients with biopsy-proven NAFLD were enrolled. To… (More)
