We investigated the influence of alloimmune T cell responses on hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication in HCV-infected patients after liver transplantation (LT). To monitor the immune-status in 27 HCV-infected LT recipients, we routinely performed mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR) assays within 4 weeks after LT. HCV RNA titers in most patients fluctuated in… CONTINUE READING
