Importance of IL28B gene polymorphisms in hepatitis C virus genotype 2 and 3 infected patients.


BACKGROUND & AIMS Genetic variation in the interleukin 28B (IL28B) gene has been associated with the response to interferon-alfa/ribavirin therapy in hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 1-infected patients. The importance of three IL28B single nucleotide polymorphisms (rs8099917, rs12980275 and rs12979860) for HCV genotype 2/3-infected patients is unknown… (More)
