Abstract A mathematical model for HCV infection, which incorporates both the routes of infection spread, namely, virus-to-cell and cell-to-cell transmission along with a cure rate of infected cells through the non-cytolytic process, is presented. In addition, the model also includes the effect of humoral immune response using a nonlinear activation rate. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first model for HCV dynamics which incorporates both the cell-free and cell-to-cell transmission as… CONTINUE READING
