Since modulation of the glutathione (GSH) level has been implicated in the regulation of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) transcription and expression, we have undertaken an analysis of the effect of sodium valproate (VPA) on HIV-1 replication. VPA, which is an anti-epileptic drug in widespread use in clinical medicine, has been shown to depress the(More)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is essentially hepatotropic, but clinical observations based on quasispecies composition in different compartments or on viral RNA detection in cells suggest that the virus is able to infect and persist in cells other than liver cells. It was shown previously that peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) are permissive to HCV(More)
It is currently unclear whether the hepatocellular damage in chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is produced through the intrahepatic action of the anti-HCV immune response or through a direct cytopathic effect. In order to investigate the features of HCV replication (morphogenesis and cytopathic effect), we studied the infection of a permissive(More)
