Hepatocyte growth factor and acute phase proteins in patients with chronic liver diseases.


Serum hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) levels are increased in patients with liver diseases. HGF has been recently reported to stimulate production of acute phase proteins such as alpha 2-macroglobulin and albumin of hepatocytes in primary culture. To clarify whether serum HGF concentrations have any relation to concentrations of acute phase proteins, we… (More)
