Core Tip The role of matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) and their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs) in the development of liver fibrosis is uncertain. We determined some single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), as well as the serum levels of diverse MMPs and TIMPs, in non-alcoholic, human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients with/out hepatitis C virus coinfection, to evaluate their possible relationship with liver fibrosis as assessed by transient elastometry. MMP-2 was independently associated with significant fibrosis. Likewise, MMP-2, TIMP-2 and MMP-9 were independent predictors of transient elastometry values and of other non-invasive tests of fibrosis. No SNP was significantly associated with liver fibrosis. Our findings support the value of these markers in the evaluation of fibrosis.
