Abstract

Background: Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are suspected to play a critical role in liver diseases and the progression of chronic hepatitis B (CHB) infection. In this study, we investigated the possible association between TLRs and hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection chronicity in Turkish population.
