Is Serum Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Level Useful For Determining Necroinflammatory Activity In Chronic Hepatitis B Infection?

Abstract

AIM The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the findings from liver biopsy and the serum angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) level to determine whether ACE might serve as a potential noninvasive sign of necroinflammatory activity in patients with Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB) infection. METHODS A total of 54 CHB patients referred… (More)
