A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Treatment with alpha interferon is a standard therapy for patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections. This treatment can reduce virus load and ameliorate disease symptoms. However, in the majority of cases, alpha interferon therapy fails to resolve the chronic HBV infection. The reason alpha interferon therapy is inefficient at resolving chronic HBV infections is assumed to be because it fails to eliminate covalently closed circular (CCC) HBV DNA from the nuclei of infected hepatocytes. In an attempt to address this issue, the stability of HBV CCC DNA in response to alpha/beta interferon induction was examined in HNF1alpha-null HBV transgenic mice. Alpha/beta interferon induction by polyinosinic-polycytidylic acid [poly(I-C)] treatment efficiently eliminated encapsidated cytoplasmic HBV replication intermediates while only modestly reducing nuclear HBV CCC DNA. These observations indicate that nuclear HBV CCC DNA is more stable than cytoplasmic replication intermediates in response to alpha/beta interferon induction. Consequently it appears that for therapies to resolve chronic HBV infection efficiently, they will have to target the elimination of the most stable HBV replication intermediate, nuclear HBV CCC DNA.
