Abstract
Chronic liver diseases (CLDs) generally progress from inflammation to fibrosis and finally to carcinogenesis. Staging of liver fibrosis progression is inevitable for the management of CLD patients. The purpose of this study was to compare the diagnostic abilities of Wisteria floribunda agglutinin-positive Mac-2 binding protein (WFA-M2BP), Enhanced liver fibrosis (ELF) score, Fibrosis-4 index, and AST to platelet ratio index (APRI) based on histopathological analysis of liver biopsy samples, from patients with positive Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) infection.
