Usefulness of the Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte Ratio and Platelet Morphologic Parameters in Predicting Hepatic Fibrosis in Chronic Hepatitis C Patients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Chronic hepatitis C (CHC) can progress to fibrosis and cirrhosis. The current gold standard for the diagnosis and staging of hepatic fibrosis is liver biopsy, but liver biopsies have various limitations. We evaluated the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet morphologic parameters to determine fibrosis in CHC patients. METHODS We… (More)
