Abstract/OtherAbstract:
IN CONCLUSION: serum biochemical markers of liver fibrosis can be considered of limited value in assessing pancreatic fibrosis; in liver cirrhosis there may be a negative feed-back regulation between TGFb production and the fibrogenetic process; and in chronic pancreatitis TGFb appears to favor fibrosis on the one hand and the development of hyperglycemia on the other.
