The Role of Hepatic Progenitor Cells (HPCs) and the Predictors of Sustained Virological Response (SVR) to Interferon Therapy in Chronic Hepatitis C Infected Patients

Increasing HPCs in hepatitis C-infected patients were shown to be correlated with increased fibrosis and response to therapy. HPCs could be detected in the liver by immunohistochemical expressions of cytokeratin ... Read more
