Abstract

Background/Aims: Non-invasive serum markers are being used to determine fibrosis score as an alternative to liver biopsy. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy and predictive value of the non-invasive markers in identifying the presence or absence of significant fibrosis in patients with chronic viral hepatitis.
