HCV genotype-3a T cell immunity: specificity, function and impact of therapy.
BACKGROUND: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype-3a infection is now the dominant strain in South Asia and the UK. Characteristic features include a favourable response to therapy; the reasons for this are unknown but may include distinct genotype-3a-specific T cell immunity. In contrast to genotype-1 infection, T cell immunity to this subtype is poorly defined. OBJECTIVES: The aims of the study were to (1) define the frequency, specificity and cross-reactivity of T cell immunity across the whole...Expand abstract
