In the liver needle biopsy specimens of 45 patients with hepatitis chronica persistens, hepatitis chronica aggressiva and cirrhosis of the liver, the number of lymphoid cells and fibroblasts, and from the serum of the same patients, the concentration of IgG, IgA, IgM, alpha-2-macroglobulin and coeuroplasmin were examined. It was established that the number of lymphoid cells and fibroblasts in the liver tissue of patients with hepatitis chronica aggressiva and cirrhosis of the liver increases significantly, that a correlation exists between the number of lymphoid cells and the concentration of IgG, and that the serum level of alpha-2-macroglobulin increases in parallel with the number of fibroblasts of the liver in hepatitis chronica aggressiva and cirrhosis of the liver.
