Adenovirus-mediated gene transfer of interferon alpha inhibits hepatitis C virus replication in hepatocytes.

Abstract

Recently we reported that on-site interferon (IFN)-alpha production in the liver using an adenovirus vector can achieve a substantial confinement of IFN-alpha in the target organ and can improve liver fibrosis in a rat liver cirrhosis model. However, the major therapeutic effect of IFN for hepatitis C virus (HCV)-associated liver diseases is its antiviral… (More)
