Laboratory of Virology, Grenoble University Hospital, Grenoble, France
J Med Virol 82:747-54. 2010..This, just as anti-HBC status, had no clinical impact in a large cohort of hepatitis C patients. It therefore does not appear useful to screen for occult hepatitis B in these patients with this test before beginning HCV treatment...

INSERM, Unité 823, Grenoble, France
J Hepatol 53:25-35. 2010..In vitro data point out that regulatory T cells (Treg) are able to suppress HCV-specific lymphocyte proliferation and cytokine secretion but their implication in this pathology is still debated...
