Topics from this paper

Update on the Diagnosis a Hepatitis C
TLDR
H epatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a national and global public health concern, and direct detection of HCV RNA has largely replaced recombinant immunoblot assay, which previously had been used to identify false-positive anti-HCV results. Expand
Prävalenz, Risikofaktoren und Verlauf einer Hepatitis C Infektion nach Herzoperation im Kindesalter vor Einführung des Blutspender-Screenings
TLDR
Diese Daten beweisen, dass polytransfundierte Kinder nach Herzoperation ahnlich wie andere padiatrische Risikogruppen (z.B. Hamophilie) behandelt werden mussen. Expand
Margins and planes of resection in colorectal cancer
On behalf of the Society, I wish to express my sincere thanks to all who have contributed to this Newsletter: Professors Raymond DuBois, K.L. Goh, Philip Quirke, Hans Tillmann, Doctors In Son Leong,Expand
Extrahepatic Immunologic Manifestations in Chronic Hepatitis C and Hepatitis C Virus Serotypes
TLDR
A serotyping assay was used to study whether the occurrence of extrahepatic immunologic abnormalities in patients with chronic hepatitis C is serotype dependent, and several studies indicate that particular HCV genotypes are associated with more severe liver disease and poorer response to interferon- therapy. Expand
Genomic organization of GB viruses A and B: two new members of the Flaviviridae associated with GB agent hepatitis
TLDR
The degree of sequence divergence between GBV-A andGBV-B and other Flaviviridae members demonstrates that the GB agents are representatives of two new genera within the Flaviviralidae family. Expand
Global Distribution and Prevalence of Hepatitis C Virus Genotypes
TLDR
It is calculated that HCV genotype 1 is the most prevalent worldwide, comprising 83.4 million cases (46.2% of all HCV cases), approximately one‐third of which are in East Asia. Expand
Genotipagem do vírus da Hepatite C por PCR em tempo real com base na análise da região NS5B
TLDR
Comparison of HCV genotypes methods showed no difference in the classification at the genotype level, but 58 samples could not be discriminated at the subtype level when the mixed infections were excluded. Expand
Genotipagem do vírus da hepatite C por PCR em tempo real com base na análise da região NS5B
TLDR
Comparison of HCV genotypes methods showed no difference in the classification at the genotype level, but 58 samples could not be discriminated at the subtype level when the mixed infections were excluded. Expand
Intrahepatic CD4+ Cell Depletion in Hepatitis C Virus/HIV–Coinfected Patients
TLDR
HIV coinfection is associated with fewer portal CD4+ cells and increased lobular lymphocyte apoptosis that may impact on the natural history of HCV infection. Expand
Virus Dynamics and Immune Responses During Treatment in Patients Coinfected With Hepatitis C and HIV
TLDR
Interferon efficacy at blocking virion production is correlated with treatment outcome in HIV/HCV co-infected patients, that immunodeficient patients can respond to standard IFN-&agr; is suggested, and both innate and adaptive immune responses may be important determinants of HCV RNA decline in response to interferon.

TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the putative envelope 1 (E1) gene in 51 HCV isolates from around the world is determined and it is found that they could be grouped into at least 12 distinct genotypes, with important implications for HCV diagnosis and vaccine development. Expand
Classification of hepatitis C virus into six major genotypes and a series of subtypes by phylogenetic analysis of the NS-5 region.
TLDR
A new nomenclature for HCV variants is proposed in this communication that reflects the two-tiered nature of sequence differences between different viral isolates and describes criteria that would enable new variants to be assigned within the classification as they are discovered. Expand
Prevalence, genotypes, and an isolate (HC‐C2) of hepatitis C virus in Chinese patients with liver disease
TLDR
The results suggest that HCV prevalence and genotype distribution vary from region to region in China, and that the HCV now predominant in China may have evolved epidemiologically with infections in Japan and Taiwan. Expand
Sequence variability in the 5' non-coding region of hepatitis C virus: identification of a new virus type and restrictions on sequence diversity.
TLDR
The specific nucleotide substitutions in the 5' NCR that differentiate each of the four HCV types can be detected by restriction enzyme cleavage, providing a rapid and reliable method for virus typing. Expand
Typing of hepatitis C virus isolates and characterization of new subtypes using a line probe assay.
A reverse-hybridization assay, the line probe assay (LiPA), based on variations found in the 5' untranslated regions of the different hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes was developed, permittingExpand
A new type of hepatitis C virus in patients in Thailand.
TLDR
The nucleotide and amino acid sequence homologies of the four HCV-T clones showed that the HCV -T type could be classified into two genotypes,HCV-Ta and HCv-Tb. Expand
Analysis of a new hepatitis C virus type and its phylogenetic relationship to existing variants.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis revealed the existence of three distinct groups of sequences that corresponded to the recently described HCV types 1 and 2 variants, while viral sequences detected in around a third of the blood donors formed a separate phylogenetic group that probably represents infection with a novel virus species. Expand
At least five related, but distinct, hepatitis C viral genotypes exist.

TLDR
Five distinct, but related, genotypes (I-V) are noted throughout the world, based on detailed sequence determination and analysis of the first 1700 nucleotides and part of the nonstructural region 5 at the C terminus of the open reading frame. Expand
Full-length sequence of a hepatitis C virus genome having poor homology to reported isolates: comparative study of four distinct genotypes.
TLDR
A proposed phylogenetic tree of HCV, with a fourth branch represented by HC-J8, allowed a classification of all HCV isolates whose complete or partial sequences are now known and suggests that all or most HCV genome sequences will fall into one of the proposed four types. Expand
