This comprehensive volume, written by experts in the field, emphasizes the most recent advances on the Hepatitis C virus infection (HCV) moving from basic research to clinical application. In spite of the numerous studies on HCV infection, its pathogenesis and medical treatment have not been fully explained. The first chapters of this volume analyze the full spectrum of immune responses to HCV taking into account either innate or adoptive immunity involvement. The volume also includes a series of contribution which explain the state of art of IFN alpha treatment in HCV patients and the effectiveness of therapy also in relation to HCV genotypes. The use and applications of pegylated IFNs will also be discussed as well as the complicated HCV disease and its treatment. Hepatitis C Virus Disease: Immunobiology and Clinical Applications is an ideal volume for researchers, scientists, professionals, clinicians, physicians, and graduate students in the fields of infectious disease, immunolgy, virology, microbiology, pharmacology and medicine.
