UNLABELLED Interleukin-17 (IL-17)-producing CD4(+) T cells (Th17)-mediated immune response has been demonstrated to play a critical role in inflammation-associated disease; however, its role in chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection remains unknown. Here we characterized peripheral and intrahepatic Th17 cells and analyzed their association with liver injury in a cohort of HBV-infected patients including 66 with chronic hepatitis B (CHB), 23 with HBV-associated acute-on-chronic liver failure… CONTINUE READING
