Hepatitis C virus (HCV)--a review molecular biology of the virus, immunodiagnostics, genomic heterogeneity and the role of virus in hepatocellular carcinoma.

Abstract

Hepatitis C virus (HCV), an RNA and a hepatotropic virus, is the leading cause of viral hepatitis worldwide. Infection with this virus causes a repertoire of liver diseases that include acute hepatitis, chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), in addition to a number of extra-hepatic manifestations such as lichen planus, oral cancer… (More)
