Considering the limitations of liver biopsy, reliable non‑invasive serum biomarkers of liver fibrosis are required for early diagnosis. The present study analyzed the expression profile of circulating micro (mi)RNAs during the development and progression of hepatic fibrosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, aiming to identify novel earlier diagnostic biomarkers. Fresh plasma samples were collected from 50 patients diagnosed with chronic HBV infection and hepatic… CONTINUE READING
