Circulating IL17a and IFN-Gamma Serum Levels in Cirrhotic Hepatitis C Virus Infected Patients with Autoimmune Thyroiditis
Autoimmune endocrine disorders are considered one of the extrahepatic manifestations of Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. HCV could trigger cytokines release due to local inflammation. Interleukin 17 a (IL17a) and Interferon gamma (IFNγ) play an important role in pathogenesis of autoimmune disease.
