Abstract

From available clinical and experimental data, the deterioration of hepatocellular function associated with fibrosis may be ascribed, in part, to loss of biologic support provided by a normal extracellular matrix. These studies of pathogenesis are expected to clarify new points of therapeutic intervention and also to rationalize empiric therapies.
