PR3 and NE liver concentrations in patients biopsy-diagnosed with NAFLD. Assessment of NAFLD progression: patients with a NAFLD score (NAS) (Brunt et al. 2011) between 0 and 2 were considered without NASH, patients with a NAFLD score between 3 and 4 were considered borderline and patients with a score ≥ 5 were diagnosed with NASH. Assessment of fibrosis stage (Brunt scale): patients with a fibrosis score of 1–2 were considered as having mild fibrosis and patients with a fibrosis score of 3–4 were considered as having severe fibrosis. a PR3 concentrations in the liver of patients with different NAS. b NE concentrations in the liver of patients with different NAS. c PR3 concentrations in the liver of patients with different fibrosis scores. d NE concentrations in the liver of patients with different fibrosis scores. Data is represented as mean ± SEM. NS= p > 0.05
