Hepatitis C virus RNA replication is resistant to tumour necrosis factor-alpha.


It was demonstrated using self-replicating hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNAs that both types of interferons (IFNs) (in particular IFN-alpha and IFN-gamma) are potent inhibitors of HCV replication in Huh-7 cells. Because IFN-gamma and tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha trigger a partially overlapping set of antiviral defence mechanisms, it is tempting to… (More)
