    Background. It has been established that many patients with chronic hepatitis C have elevated serum iron, feritin levels and iron deposites in the liver. Therefore, the liver damage due to hepatitis C virus may be aggravated with iron overload. In many studies higher levels of iron in the blood...

    OBJECTIVES: Because of the suboptimal efficacy, cost, and adverse effects of interferon in chronic hepatitis C (HCV). predictors have been sought to detect patients with a good treatment response. Also, markers for determining a poor response early in the course of therapy, such as the lack of...

    OBJECTIVE -- A high prevalence of diabetes has been reported in patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Both diabetes and HCV infection are associated with high serum ferritin levels. Although HCV infection could be the main factor responsible for the high ferritin levels, it is also...

    More than 4 million people in the United States are infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV). During the next 20-30 years, the burden of HCV-related mortality and morbidity will likely double. To date, the most effective treatment for chronic HCV infection is the combination of either interferon...
