Activation of extrinsic apoptosis pathway in HCV monoinfected and HIV–HCV coinfected patients, irrespective of liver disease severity

Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with increased levels of peripheral T cell apoptosis. We aimed to study whether T cell apoptosis markers indicate pathways that may contribute to clinical progression in HCV monoinfected and HIV–HCV coinfected patients. Activation of the extrinsic apoptosis pathways was measured by levels of death… CONTINUE READING
