Hepatitis C virus (HCV) in highly infectious sera has been shown to be predominantly associated with low-density lipoproteins. To determine whether the association is specific to low-density lipoproteins (LDL) or very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL), we fractionated HCV-containing plasma by a column chromatographic procedure known to separate these classes. Hepatitis C virus RNA detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was associated primarily with the very low-density (VLDL) fraction… CONTINUE READING
