Hyaluronan (HA) and aminoterminal propeptide of type III procollagen (PIIINP), two biochemical connective tissue markers, were determined in 76 patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). The HA and PIIINP concentrations were significantly increased compared with controls (P less than 0.001). Both HA and PIIINP levels correlated significantly with… CONTINUE READING
