Detection of type 2-like T-helper cells in hepatitis C virus infection: implications for hepatitis C virus chronicity.

Abstract

One striking clinical feature of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is that more than 50% of patients with acute hepatitis C will develop chronic infection. To investigate its possible mechanisms, we examined the activation of type 2-like T-helper (Th2-like) cells relating to the development of chronicity. Peripheral blood CD4+ T-cell proliferation and… (More)
