Psychiatric disturbances associated with Interferon therapy for HCV in Sohag Governorate
Abstract Background: Psychiatric disturbances in chronic HCV infected patients under treatment by Pegylated-interferon and ribavirin combined therapy (PEG-IFN/Rib)still show worldwide controversy and no sufficient studies address this problem in Upper Egypt.Aim of the study: to detect the pattern and prevalence of psychiatric disturbances in chronic HCV infected (CHC) patientsunderPEG-IFN/Rib and the risk factors for these disturbances. Patients and methods: 167 ... Read more

Estimation of Lymphocyte Subpopulations as Predictors of Response to Pegylated-Interferon Therapy in Chronic Hepatitis C Virus Infection
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is one of the endemic viral infections in Egypt and there is no vaccine for HCV, and the only available treatment, a combination of α-interferon and ribavirin, is effective in a minority of patients, various viral and host factors may affect response to treatment. The aim of this work is to examine changes in lymphocyte subpopulations ... Read more
