The effective inhibition of HBV can partially regress or reverse liver fibrosis in patients with chronic Hepatitis and liver cirrhosis due to HBV, however some patients keep existence or development although HBV DNA is under-detectable after anti-virals. Theses refractory liver fibrosis is required the anti-fibrotic treatment focusing on the regulation of hepatic extracellular matrix, especially is necessary for in the patients with advance fibrosis stage ie. liver cirrhosis. Fuzheng Huayu has been found to enhance the degradation of collagens in fibrotic liver and have a good action against liver fibrosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B.
