The role of gender dimorphism in the development and outcome of chronic viral hepatitis
Chronic viral liver diseases still have a leading place in the structure of mortality from hepatobiliary diseases and causes of liver transplantation. Search for factors influencing the progression of fibrosis and the prognosis of the disease are of public health priority. The article provides an overview of the research on the influence of sex hormones on the progression of liver fibrosis, the likelihood of hepatocellular carcinoma development in men and women of reproductive age and menopausal state.
