BACKGROUND & AIMS After liver transplantation for hepatitis C virus (HCV), reinfection of the allograft invariably occurs. Indirect evidence suggests that the cellular immune response may play a central role. The purpose of this analysis was to determine the correlation between HCV-specific peripheral CD4(+) T-cell responses and the severity of recurrence after liver transplantation. METHODS Fifty-eight HCV-seropositive patients, including 43 liver transplant recipients with at least 1 year… CONTINUE READING
