Primary cultures of human hepatocytes isolated from hepatitis C virus-infected cirrhotic livers as a model to study hepatitis C infection.

Abstract

BACKGROUND/AIM Since the discovery of hepatitis C virus (HCV), researchers have encountered difficulties with in vitro models. The aim of this study was to determine whether HCV-infected human primary hepatocytes, isolated from cirrhotic livers at liver transplantation, can be used as a model to study HCV infection. METHODS Hepatocytes were isolated with… (More)
