Liver fibrosis refers to the formation of fibrous scars in the liver due to chronic liver inflammation. When liver damage occurs, fibroblasts build up in the liver and deposit scar-like tissue, called fibrosis. This overgrowth of fibrous tissue eventually leads to cirrhosis and liver failure. The most common causes of liver fibrosis include hepatitis B and C infections, alcohol abuse, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and autoimmune liver disorders. The increasing prevalence of liver disorders and growing awareness related to early detection and treatment of liver fibrosis are the major factors driving the demaand for liver fibrosis treatment drugs and therapies.
