Cytokines induced during chronic hepatitis B virus infection promote a pathway for NK cell–mediated liver damage
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) causes chronic infection in more than 350 million people worldwide. It replicates in hepatocytes but is non-cytopathic; liver damage is thought to be immune mediated. Here, weExpand
