AIM To investigate the relationship between the changes of cytokine levels in serum and ALT, HCV genotype, HCV RNA loading and the effectiveness of IFN treatment. The cytokines included IL-2, IFN-γ, IL-5, IL-6, IL-12P70 and IL-12P40. METHODS Contents of IL-2, IFN-γ, IL-5, IL-6, IL-12P70 and IL-12P40 in serum of 30 patients with chronic hepatitis C and 30 healthy adults were detected. The relationship of cytokine level with ALT level , HCV genotype, HCV RNA load were analyzed . The differences… CONTINUE READING
