AIM   Liver biopsy is recommended in the majority of patients with chronic viral hepatitis for fibrosis evaluation. Because of the disadvantages of liver biopsy, many studies related to non-invasive biomarkers and scores have been performed. In this study, we aimed to assess the diagnostic value of serum direct markers and non-invasive fibrosis models to predict liver fibrosis in the treatment-naive chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients and to compare their diagnostic performance.
