Treatment response and susceptibility to chronic viral hepatitis C and B may be modified by host genetic factors. The majority of genetic variants that confer a significant risk have been localized in genes involved in immune response. However, many findings could not be replicated and almost none of the identified risk factors had a noticeable impact on… (More)
