Dendritic cell susceptibility to hepatitis C virus genotype 1 infection.

In vitro infection of human monocyte-derived dendritic cells was carried out to study their susceptibility to hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Immature dendritic cells and mature dendritic cells were incubated overnight at 37 degrees C with HCV-positive (genotype 1) serum samples; the presence of the viral genome associated with the production of its… CONTINUE READING
