IL-8 is associated with non-viremic state and IFN-γ with biochemical activity in HCV-seropositive blood donors.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore a possible association between the pattern of serum cytokines with the virological and biochemical status of hepatitis C virus (HCV)-seropositive blood donors. METHODS 23 non-viremic and 33 viremic HCV-seropositive blood donors based on HCV-RNA tests, and 29 healthy individuals were included. Cytometric bead… (More)
