Do Low High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) Levels Predict Treatment Outcome in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis C Viral Infection?

2014-07-23 21:08:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The working hypothesis is that the low HDL serum level predict favorable response to anti viral treatment in chronic HCV (genotype 1) viral infection. This might be used to improve the rate of sustained virologic response.

Description

Lipoproteins are closely connected to the process of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Metabolic syndrome predicts negative treatment outcome in HCV infection.

Aim: to assess the association between lipids components of the metabolic syndrome and sustained viral response (SVR).

HDV evolution-will viral resistance be an issue in HDV infection?

Hepatitis D virus (HDV) is a hepatotropic subviral infectious agent, obligate satellite of the Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and is highly related to viroids. HDV affects around 5% of the 257 million chroni...

Differentiating responders and non-responders to rTMS treatment for depression after one week using resting EEG connectivity measures.

Non-response to repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) treatment for depression is costly for both patients and clinics. Simple and cheap methods to predict response would reduce this bur...

Low responsiveness to a hepatitis B virus vaccine in a Chinese population lacks association with ITGAL, CD58, TNFSF15, CCL15, TGFB3, and BCL6 gene variants.

It is known that multiple genetic variants can affect immune responses to the hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccine. A case-control study was undertaken to examine the possible association of low responsive...

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).

Personnel trained to provide the initial services, care, and support in EMERGENCIES or DISASTERS.

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.

A strain of mice bred specifically as high or low antibody responders.

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in animals due to viral infection.
