Summary of "Community viral load and hepatitis C virus infection: Community viral load measures to aid public health treatment efforts and program evaluation."

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is the most prevalent blood-borne infection and causes more deaths than any other infectious disease in the US. Incident HCV infection in the US increased nearly 300 % between 2010 and 2015, Community viral load (CVL) measures have been developed for HIV to measure both transmission risk and treatment engagement in programs or areas.

Anti-Viral Effects of Interferon-λ3 on Hepatitis B Virus Infection in Cell Culture.

Interferon (IFN)-λ3 is known to have anti-viral effects against various pathogens. Recently, it has been reported that the production of IFN-λ3 in colon cells following the administration of nucleot...

Torque teno virus viral load is related to age, CMV infection and HLA type but not to Alzheimer's disease.

Torque teno virus (TTV) is an unenveloped, circular, single stranded DNA virus with a genome size of approximately 3.8 kb. Previous studies have demonstrated varying grades of association between TTV ...

The hepatitis B virus (HBV) is endemic in Uzbekistan but the medical impact of infection with the HBV-dependent hepatitis D virus (HDV) is unknown in the Country. An Hepatology Center was recently est...

The relationship between IFNL4 genotype and the rate of fibrosis in hepatitis C patients.

IFNL4 rs12979860 genotype CC is associated with increased ALT activity and liver stiffness in hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype (G) 3 infection but not in G1. The primary aim of this study is to assess...

The Influence of Antiretroviral Therapy on Hepatitis C Virus Viral Load and Liver Fibrosis in Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Coinfected Patients: An Observational Study.

The role of antiretroviral therapy (ART) for Hepatitis C viral load (HCV-VL) and liver fibrosis is poorly understood. This study aimed at evaluating the influence of ART on HCV-VL and liver fibrosis i...

Background: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is usually observed among patients with HIV infection. No study to date has investigated the impact of CMV infection on HIV viral load decay dur...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans due to infection by VIRUSES. There are several significant types of human viral hepatitis with infection caused by enteric-transmission (HEPATITIS A; HEPATITIS E) or blood transfusion (HEPATITIS B; HEPATITIS C; and HEPATITIS D).

The quantity of measurable virus in a body fluid. Change in viral load, measured in plasma, is sometimes used as a SURROGATE MARKER in disease progression.

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS DELTA VIRUS, a defective RNA virus that can only infect HEPATITIS B patients. For its viral coating, hepatitis delta virus requires the HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGENS produced by these patients. Hepatitis D can occur either concomitantly with (coinfection) or subsequent to (superinfection) hepatitis B infection. Similar to hepatitis B, it is primarily transmitted by parenteral exposure, such as transfusion of contaminated blood or blood products, but can also be transmitted via sexual or intimate personal contact.

Any vaccine raised against any virus or viral derivative that causes hepatitis.
