OBJECTIVES:A relationship between chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and lipid metabolism has recently been suggested. The aim of this study was to determine the correlation between lipid profile and virology, histologic lesions, and response to α interferon therapy in noncirrhotic, nondiabetic patients with hepatitis C.METHODS:A total of 109 consecutive untreated chronic hepatitis C patients were studied to assess the following: 1) the effects of HCV genotype, viral load, steatosis… CONTINUE READING
