Background/Aims: Liver cirrhosis is the irreversible end-result of fibrous scarring and hepatocellular regeneration, characterized by diffuse disorganization of normal hepatic structure by regenerative nodules and fibrotic tissue. In this study, we elucidated the role of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in liver regeneration.
