Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is endemic in many countries due to its high propensity for establishing persistence. The presence of HCV-specific T cells in subjects repeatedly exposed to HCV who test negative for HCV RNA and antibodies and who do not have any history of HCV infection has been interpreted as T cell–mediated protection. Here, we show in nonhuman primates that repeated exposure to human plasma with trace amounts of HCV induced HCV-specific T cells without seroconversion and systemic… CONTINUE READING
