Viral persistence, liver disease, and host response in a hepatitis C–like virus rat model

Abstract:

The lack of a relevant, tractable, and immunocompetent animal model for hepatitis C virus (HCV) has severely impeded investigations of viral persistence, immunity, and pathogenesis. In the absence of immunocompetent models with robust HCV infection, homolog hepaciviruses in their natural host could potentially provide useful surrogate models. We isolated a rodent hepacivirus from wild rats (Rattus norvegicus), RHV‐rn1; acquired the complete viral genome sequence; and developed an infectious r...
