Abstract

Hepatic fibroplasia seems to play an important role in the course of primary liver cancer (PLC) since, for instance, encapsulated and fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinomas show a definitely better prognosis. In this study, serum procollagen III amino-terminal peptide (PIIIP) levels, which reflect synthesis and release of procollagen type III, were measured with the aim of assessing hepatic fibrogenesis in PLC patients and determining whether serum PIIIP levels play a diagnostic or prognostic role in PLC. Twenty-five patients with PLC, 74 patients with cirrhosis and 38 healthy volunteers were studied. Serum PIIIP levels were determined by a radioimmunoassay (RIA) method. In PLC patients PIIIP serum levels were significantly higher than those of controls and cirrhotic patients (P
