Abstract

Objective: In recent years, a lot of non-invasive tests have been examined for estimating the severity of liver fibrosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). We aimed to evaluate the role of simple and valuable platelet-derived indices in estimating the stage of fibrosis and cirrhosis in patients with CHB.
