Natural killer cells (NK) are one of the key players in the eradication and control of viral infections. Infections with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) may lead to persistence in a subgroup of patients, and impaired NK cell functions have been observed in these patients. Crosstalk with other immune cells has been shown to modulate the function of NK cells. We(More)
Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is caused by inadequate anti-viral immunity. Activation of plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDC) leading to IFNα production is important for effective anti-viral immunity. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection lacks IFNα induction in animal models and patients and chronic HBV patients display impaired IFNα production by(More)
