The mechanism responsible for autoimmune diseases in infected patients has not been fully elucidated. This study aims to evaluate the frequency of AITD in chronic hepatitis C and the association of chemokine (CXC motif) ligand 10 (CXCL10) and AITD. One hundred and three patients with chronic hepatitis C and 96 controls were prospectively selected to… CONTINUE READING
