Abstract: Acuteonchronic liver failure is characterized by critical condition  and rapid development with poor prognosis. Early diagnosis and positive treatment is the key to survival of patients. Numerous prognostic biomarkers arising in recent years can be summarized and divided into four categories,  including proteins (biomarkers correlate with inflammation response,  apoptosis or necrocytosis,  and immunoreaction),  cytology,  nucleic acids,  and metabolomics. Part of them may have better prognostic evaluation value.
