Association of genotypes with viral load and biochemical markers in HCV-infected Sindhi patients BJM
Riaz,Saba; Bashir,Muhammad Faisal; Haider,Saleem; Rahid,Naeem.
Abstract The presented study had two objectives. The first was to examine distributions of Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) genotypes in Sindh, Pakistan, where HCV is prevalent. The other was to explore clinically relevant relationships between the genotypes, viral load (measured by real-time polymerase chain reaction assays) and biochemical markers. For this, 1471 HCV-infected patients in six cities in Sindh were recruited and sampled. HCV genotype distributions varied among the cities, but genotype 3a was most prevalent, followed by 3b, 1a and 1b (detected in 51.5, 22.7. 9.25 and 3.2% of the cases, respectively). No type-specific sequences were detected in serum samples from 189 (12.8%) of the 1471 patients. Frequencies of low (<200,000 IU/mL serum),...

Soroprevalence for Hepatitis C virus is reported as 2.12% in Northern Brazil, with about 50% of the patients exhibiting a sustained virological response (SVR). Aiming to associate polymorphisms in Killer Cell Immunoglobulin-like Receptors (KIR) with chronic hepatitis C and therapy responses we investigated 125 chronic patients and 345 controls. Additionally, 48 ancestry markers were genotyped to control for population stratification. The frequency of the KIR2DL2 and KIR2DL2+HLA-C Asp80 gene and ligand was higher in chronic infected patients than in controls (p < 0.0009, OR = 3.4; p = 0.001, OR = 3.45). In fact, KIR2DL3 is a weaker inhibitor of NK activity than KIR2DL2, which could explain the association of KIR2DL2 with chronic infection. Moreover,...

Characteristics of co-infections by HCV and HBV among Brazilian patients infected by HIV-1 and/or HTLV-1 BJID
Moreira,Marcia; Ramos,André; Netto,Eduardo M.; Brites,Carlos.
BACKGROUND: The human retroviruses HIV-1 and HTLV-1 share the routes of infection with hepatitis viruses B and C. Co-infection by these agents are a common event, but we have scarce knowledge on co-infection by two or more of these agents. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the characteristics and risk factors for co-infections by HBV and HCV in patients infected by HIV-1 or/and HTLV-1, in Salvador, Brazil. METHODS: In a case-control study we evaluated patients followed in the AIDS and HTLV clinics of Federal University of Bahia Hospital. Clinical and epidemiological characteristics were reviewed, and patients were tested for the presence of serological markers of HBV and HCV infections. HCV-infected patients were tested by PCR to evaluate the presence of viremia....

Focaccia,R.; Baraldo,D.C.M.; Ferraz,M.L.G.; Martinelli,A.L.C.; Carrilho,F.J.; Gonçales Jr.,F.L.; Pedroso,M.L.A.; Coelho,H.S.M.; Lacerda,M.A.; Brandão,C.E.; Mattos,A.A.; Lira,L.G.C.; Zamin Jr.,I.; Pinheiro,J.O.P.; Tovo,C.V.; Both,C.T.; Soares,J.A.S.; Dittrich,S..
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a serious public health problem, since 80% to 85% of HCV carriers develop a persistent infection that can progress into liver cirrhosis and hepatocarcinoma. Considering that the response of hepatitis C patients to combination therapy with interferon and ribavirin depends on HCV characteristics as well as on host features, we made a retrospective analysis of demographic and anthropometrical data and HCV genotype distribution of chronic hepatitis C patients treated in public and private reference centers in Brazil. The medical records of 4,996 patients were reviewed, 81% from public and 19% from private institutions. Patients' median age was 46 years, and there was a higher prevalence of male (62%) and white patients...

Diagnostic performance of an immunoassay for simultaneous detection of HCV core antigen and antibodies among haemodialysis patients BJM
El-Emshaty,Wafaa M; Raafat,Douaa; Elghannam,Doaa M; Saudy,Niveen; Eltoraby,Ehab E; Metwalli,Abd Elhameed A.
Nosocomial transmission of HCV is a concern in haemodialysis (HD) units worldwide. Diagnosis of HCV infection among dialysis patients is currently based on the detection of anti HCV antibodies by ELISA, and is confirmed by HCV RNA. The average window period between HCV infection and seroconversion with new generations of HCV antibody tests remains approximately 70 days with more prolonged period among dialysis patients. In this study we assessed the diagnostic performance of an immunoassay designed for simultaneous detection of anti HCV antibodies and core antigen in one step in comparison to qualitative RT-PCR and anti HCV antibodies detection test among Egyptian haemodialysis patients. The studied patients were 39 chronic renal failure patients on...

Distribution of HCV genotypes among different exposure categories in Brazil BJMBR
Oliveira,M.L.A.; Bastos,F.I.; Sabino,R.R.; Paetzold,U.; Schreier,E.; Pauli,G.; Yoshida,C.F.T..
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is widespread and responsible for more than 60% of chronic hepatitis cases. HCV presents a genetic variability which has led to viral classification into at least 6 genotypes and a series of subtypes. These variants present characteristic geographical distribution, but their association with different responses to treatment with interferon and severity of disease still remains controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate the patterns of distribution of HCV genotypes among different exposure categories in Brazil. Two hundred and fifty anti-HCV positive samples were submitted to HCV-RNA detection by RT-PCR and their genotype was determined by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis. In addition,...

Brunetta,Denise Menezes; De Santis,Gil Cunha; Vilar,Fernando Crivelenti; Brandão,Renata Amorim; Muniz,Renata Zomer de Albernaz; Lima,Geovana Momo Nogueira de; Amorelli-Chacel,Manuela Emiliana; Covas,Dimas Tadeu; Machado,Alcyone Artioli.
HIV patients infected through injected drug use have poorer prognosis than other groups. We evaluated the hematological alterations and rates of co-infections in injected drug use patients with AIDS. Injected drug use patients were younger, predominantly of male gender, and presented lower CD4, total lymphocyte, and platelet counts, but not neutrophil count, than control group. Injected drug use patients had a higher rate of hepatitis C and mycobacteria infection. Furthermore, all injected drug use patients with hemoglobin <10.0 g dL-1 and lymphocyte <1000 µL-1 had CD4 count lower than 100 µL-1. In conclusion, HIV-infected injected drug use patients constitute a special group of patients, and hemoglobin concentration and lymphocyte count can be used...

Hepatitis C treatment: shorter and better? BJID
Araújo,Evaldo Stanislau Affonso de; Courtouké,Cláudia; Barone,Antonio Alci.
Herein, we present a synthesis of two publications that evaluate an abbreviated therapeutic approach to treating chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Based on those publications, we discuss the use of the early virologic response (EVR) as a tool for the optimized management of patients under treatment, as well as reviewing concepts of HCV viral kinetics. The fourth-week EVR, characterized by HCV RNA dropping to undetectable levels, allows individuals infected with HCV genotype 1 and presenting low baseline viral loads to be treated with the combination of pegylated interferon and ribavirin for 24 weeks, whereas individuals infected with HCV genotypes 2 or 3 can be treated for only 12 weeks. Therefore, by adopting abbreviated treatment regimens...

Hepatitis C virus detection in the semen of infected patients BJID
Cavalheiro,Norma de Paula; Santos,Ana Carolina de Oliveira; Melo,Carlos Eduardo; Morimitsu,Suzana Rie; Barone,Antonio Alci.
Though HCV infection is a serious public health problem, some aspects of its biology are still not well understood, such as its transmission through seminal fluid and sexual transmission. We looked for HCV in the semen of infected patients. Thirteen patients were included. Semen fractions (seminal plasma, leukocytes and spermatozoa) were separated with 45% and 90% Percoll gradients. The HCV-RNA in blood and semen fractions was extracted using the same protocol (AMPLICOR Roche) and was detected using the qualitative Roche Amplicor test and by agarose gel electrophoresis, with ethidium bromide staining. The mean age of the patients was 40.7 years. Risk factors for the acquisition of HCV included injectable and inhaled drug use in six (42.8%), blood...

High prevalence of hepatitis C infection in a Brazilian prison: identification of risk factors for infection BJID
Guimarães,Thaís; Granato,Celso F. H.; Varella,Drauzio; Ferraz,Maria Lúcia G.; Castelo,Adauto; Kallás,Esper Georges.
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes infectious hepatitis worldwide. It is transmitted mainly by blood products and sharing of intravenous paraphernalia during illicit drug use. High prevalence rates have been described among specific groups considered to be at higher risk for HCV infection, including prison inmates. The objectives of this study were: to determine the HCV seroprevalence among inmates of Casa de Detenção de São Paulo; to identify risk factors for HCV infection; and to compare the seroprevalence of HCV to other blood borne or sexually transmitted diseases. From December, 1993, to January, 1994, a total of 779 inmates were interviewed to collect information on sociodemographic status, sexual behavior, and past experience with illicit drugs. Blood...

LACK OF EXPRESSION OF HEPATITIS C VIRUS CORE PROTEIN IN HUMAN MONOCYTE-DERIVED DENDRITIC CELLS USING RECOMBINANT SEMLIKI FOREST VIRUS Acta biol.Colomb.
NAVAS,Maria-Cristina; STOLL-KELLER,Françoise; PAVLOVIC,Jovan.
ABSTRACT Hepatitis C Virus belongs to the Flaviviridae family. One proposed mechanism of HCV persistence in the ability to infect hematopoietic cells, including Dendritic cells (DCs). HCV infection of DCs could impair their functions that represent one of the mechanisms, thus hampering viral clearance by the host immune system. Among HCV-encoded proteins, the highly conserved Core protein has been suggested to be responsible for the immunomodulatory properties of this Hepacivirus. Recombinant viral vectors expressing the HCV Core protein and allowing its transduction and therefore the expression of the protein into DCs could be useful tools for the analysis of the properties of the Core protein. Vaccinia Virus and retrovirus have been used to transduce...
