Serum levels of IgG to the peptide of HCV1b core at positions 35–44 correlated with persistent infection, while levels of IgG to the peptide of NS5A at positions 2132–2140 correlated with better prognosis in HCV-infected patients


We previously reported that two IgG Abs to the hepatitis C virus (HCV), anti-core 35–44 (C35) and anti-NS5A 2132–2140 (NS5A2132), existed in the sera of the majority of patients with HCV infection. This study investigated if measuring the two Abs would facilitate the prediction of a patient’s prognosis. The serum levels of anti-C35 were found to correlate… (More)
