Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlative evaluation with liver fibrosis by Real-time Tissue Elastography® and histological diagnosis [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    To evaluate the correlation between Real-time Tissue Elastography® index and histological diagnosis (the gold standard for liver fibrosis), we calculate sensitivity and specificity, ROC curves.

    Sensitivity, specificity and ROC curves obtained under below stiations:

    1. liver fibrosis index diagnose of histological diagnosis F4
    2. liver fibrosis index diagnose of histological diagnosis F3 or greater
    3. liver fibrosis index diagnose of histological diagnosis F2 or greater


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlative evaluation with liver fibrosis by Real-time Tissue Elastography® and serum maker [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the correlation between Real-time Tissue Elastography® index and serum markers of hepatic fibrosis, we estimate Pearson correlation coefficient of each request.

  • Correlative evaluation with liver fibrosis by Real-time Tissue Elastography® and FibroScan® [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the correlation between Real-time Tissue Elastography® index and FibroScan® index, we estimate Pearson correlation coefficient of each request.

Study Start Date: September 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

The aim of this study is to validate the diagnostic value of Real-time Tissue Elastography® by comparison with liver histology, serum marker or FibroScan® in chronic hepatitis B or C patients.Real-time Tissue Elastography®, biopsy and serum maker are performed.

If in the hospital they can perform FibroScan®, FobroScan® also be performed. The subjects must be scheduled for liver biopsy either prior to treatment (treatment naïve) or, if previously treated, they must have been off treatment for at least six months. The time between the Real-time Tissue Elastography® , biopsy, blood sampling and FiroScan® must not exceed four weeks.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population

Subjects with chronic hepatitis B or C, undergoing a liver biopsy as the standard of care for their disease, will be eligible for the study. Subjects with other infectious viral diseases or chronic liver disease are excluded for study enrollment.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female and at least 20 years of age
  • Chronic hepatitis B or Chronic hepatitis C
  • Subject is willing to fast for 8 hours prior to each study visit

Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of alcohol abuse (alcohol intake > 20g/day)
  • Evidence or history of chronic hepatitis not caused by HBV or HCV
  • During 6 months before registration to this trial has completed, nucleic acid analogue preparations or interferon therapy was performed.
  • Pregnant or lactating patients
  • Contraindications of liver biopsy or liver resection
