Potential of adhesins in diagnostics of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

Sergey Slyadnev; Pavel Koroy;

In 208 patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) the blood levels of ICAM-1, VCAM-1 and PECAM-1 are studied. Increase in the blood concentration of all adhesion molecules was observed in NAFLD regardless of gender or age of patients. Values of ICAM-1 in blood of more than 690 ng/ml were characterized by moderate diagnostic
accuracy in diagnostics of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
