HA, LN, PCIII, and CIV are commonly used indicators of liver fibrosis.
PCIII is a precursor of type III collagen, reflecting the synthesis of fibrosis and inflammatory activity (26,27).
The elevation of PCIII is closely related to the degree of hepatic fibrosis (28).
Our results indicated that DMN administration (liver fibrosis model) increased the serum levels of HA, LN, PCIII and CIV in the liver fibrosis rat (p <0.01, n = 10).
ECM components (such as HA, LN, PCIII and CIV) may be altered by metabolic collagen, which corresponds with the degree of hepatic fibrosis (Ruehl et al.
In this study, PR treatment rescued the increased serum levels of collagenic components (HA, LN, PCIII and CIV), and Hyp and Col I levels in the DMN-lesioned liver.

As is shown in Table 2, compared with the model group rats, serum levels of HA, LN and PCIII were significantly reduced in RA treated groups (p<0.05 or p< 0.01).

HA, LN and PCIII levels in serum and HYP in liver are the important indices reflecting the degree of hepatic fibrosis (Hayasaka and Saisho 1998; Korner et al.
