Abstract

Objective: Decreased serum insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and insulin like growth factor binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) levels have been found in patients with chronic liver disease of different etiologies, but these factors have not been studied extensively in patients with hepatitis B virus (HBV)-induced chronic liver disease.
