Simple clinical variables predict liver histology in hepatitis C: prospective validation of a clinical prediction model



Simple clinical variables predict liver histology in hepatitis C: prospective validation of a clinical prediction model



Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology 40(11): 1365-1371



Objective. A recent single-center multivariate analysis of hepatitis C (HCV) patients showed that having any two criteria: 1) ferritin >= 200 mu g/ l and 2) spider nevi and/ or albumin <= 35 g/l predicted grade 2 or greater histological inflammation; the presence of any two of the following criteria: spider nevi, platelets <= 150 x 10(9)/ l, palpable splenomegaly and/ or albumin <= 35 g/ l predicted stage 2 or greater histological fibrosis.
