The IL-10 Promoter Polymorphism at Position −592 is Correlated with Susceptibility to Occult HBV Infection

Abstract

Occult hepatitis B infection (OBI) is characterized as a form of hepatitis in which detectable amounts of HBV-DNA can be monitored in the peripheral blood of patients whereas the hepatitis B surface antigen is undetectable. The main aim of this study was to investigate whether there is a relationship between OBI and single nucleotide polymorphisms in the… (More)
