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

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Mutations in hepatitis C virus (HCV) nonstructural protein 5A (NS5A) may correlate with response to interferon in Japanese patients with chronic hepatitis C. The aim of this study was to examine whether these findings could be expanded to European patients infected with genotypes associated to low (1b) or high (3a) response rates.

METHODS: Pretreatment serum samples of 66 patients with chronic HCV infection, 48 infected with genotype 1b and 18 with 3a, were analyzed.

RESULTS: Among patients infected with genotype 3a, 1 of 7 long-term responders and none of 11 nonresponders showed NS5A amino acid mutations. Among patients infected with genotype 1b, all 7 long-term responders, but also 27 of 41 nonresponders, showed NS5A mutations. There was no correlation between number of mutations and response to therapy. In 10 patients, sequences obtained before and after treatment were compared and failed to show any change. Serum HCV RNA levels did not differ between patients with and without mutations in NS5A sequence.

CONCLUSIONS: No significant correlation was found in patients infected with genotypes 1b or 3a between NS5A sequence and response to interferon alfa. NS5A mutations do not correlate with viral load. Changes in this region were not found during interferon alfa treatment.
