  1. §A2M, alpha 2 macroglobulin; VDBP, vitamin D binding protein; ApoAI, apolipoprotien AI.The p value was calculated by one way ANOVA with DeCyder 6.5 software. ↑, present in normal and each fibrotic stage but the protein expression in fibrotic stages (F1-F4) is higher than that in normal control (F0); ↓, present in normal and each fibrotic stage but the protein expression in moderate/advanced fibrotic stages (F3/F4) is lower than that in normal control/mild fibrotic stage (F0/F1).
