A parallel increase in liver collagen content and prolyl hydroxylase activity was observed in hamsters infected with the human liver flukeOpisthorchis viverrini. They were elevated at 2 weeks after infection, gradually increased to approximately 2-fold at 7–11 weeks of infection, and then declined as with duration of infection time increasing from 11 to 22 weeks.
