Core Tip Urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) is known to be a substantial factor in the etiopathogenesis of hepatic inflammation and liver fibrogenesis. This study is the first to show that circulating uPAR is more elevated in biliary atresia (BA) children than in control subjects, and that circulating uPAR is correlated with the degree of jaundice and liver fibrosis in biliary atresia. Elevated serum uPAR is positively correlated with the severity of liver stiffness in postKasai BA children. Hence, serum uPAR could be used as a biological parameter indicating the pro-gression and prognosis of liver fibrosis in BA children.
