Antibodies Abs to microbial glycans could be markers of HC severity caused by the translocation of microbial products. The level of anti-glycan AG Abs was analysed in serum samples of patients with chronic HC in ELISA using fourteen synthetic glycans present in microbes and adhesins to evaluate the association of Abs with clinical parameters and the efficacy of antiviral treatment.
AbstractHepatology Vol 46, N 4 8. The effectiveness of the combined treatment Peginterferon alfa -2a and ribavirin in Hepatitis C were intensively studied, but mainly for genotype 1.
Little information was known about the treatment of genotype 6 which occurred at high frequency in several Asian countries, including China, Viet Nam, Hongkong and Thailand etc.
The aims of the study therefore are to evaluate the effectiveness, safety and other influential factors at the therapeutic regime of Peginterferon alfa -2a combined with Ribavirin for chronic hepatitis C patients with genotype 6 in Vietnam. Sustained virus responses were nearly the same between the two groups Group I: Normal transaminase levels at week 72 were Patients who had rapid viral responses, almost all had sustained viral responses.
Patients with chronic hepatitis C genotype 6 who have never been treated or have failed with standard interferon showed good responses when treated by Peginterferon alfa-2a combined with Ribavirin.
The sustained viral response was better than that of genotype 1. Patients especially had rapid viral responses; almost all had sustained viral responses.
So will the treatment time be shorten for these patients? We will need further studies in future. This incidence especially is higher in the longer time of treatment and loss of treatment benefit.
Entercavir is a new antiviral agent shown its high efficacy even in cases of mutations with Lamivudine resistance.
In this study, we would like to evaluate the efficacy, the safety of Entercavir in treatment of Lamivudine-refractory patients chronic hepatitis B. To analyze factors that influent to the efficacy of treatment. Sixty chronic hepatitis B patients with evidence of Lamivudine resistance were randomly divided into two groups in proportion of 3: Treatment time was 48 weeks.
All data were evaluated in the end of the treatment: The factors such as: ALT was normal in Entecavir group Histologic improvement in Entecavir group was Patients with HBeAg negative, genotype B, low virus load were shown better results.
Entecavir was shown to be efficacious in the treatment for chronic hepatitis B patients experienced with Lamivudine resistance. Entercavir is safe, with almost no side effects. Factors such as HBeAg negative, genotype B, low virus load seems to be better in response to the treatment.
The recurrence or mutation of Entecavir resistance should be studied further in future. International Hepatology- Vol 3-N 1 9. Chronic hepatitis C patients who were treated with Interferon alfa afterward having a failure of therapy or relapse are not very few. So, a question that if these cases could be retreated with Peginterferon-alfa?
The aims of the study are to evaluate the effectiveness, safety and other influenced factors to the therapeutic regime of Peginterferon alfa-2a combined with Ribavirin.
The results were found that: Sustained viral response was significantly higher in the relapsed group than that in the non-respond group The rate of relapse in non-respond group was also higher than that in the relapsed group. Viral load only affected to sustained viral response in non-respond group.
Dose reduction of Peginterferon or Ribavirin do not cause any influences on sustained viral response. In chronic hepatitis C patients with difficulties of treatment, non-response or relapsed with previous therapy of interferon alfa still being able to gain a sustained viral response when retreated with Peginterferon alfa-2a plus Ribavirin.
Relapsed patients or previously treated with interferon alone could have a successful potential of retreatment.Background: Improved therapies and subsequent survival of patients infected with HIV have changed the approach to patients coinfected with HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV).
The overall incidence of HCV in patients infected with HIV is approximately 8%.

Patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections are treated with pegylated interferon and ribavirin (PEG-IFN/RBV), which is effective in less than 50% of those infected with HCV genotype 1.
