Removal of hepatitis C virus by G-1 beads in sera from patients with chronic hepatitis C
Our in vitro study confirmed that G-1 beads adsorbed HCV; therefore, apheresis using a column filled with G-1 beads may reduce the HCV RNA load in the blood of patients with chronic hepatitis C.
Leucocytapheresis with Adacolumn enhances HCV-specific proliferative responses in patients infected with hepatitis C virus genotype 1
The results indicate that activation of cellular immunity by leucocytapheresis facilitates an early virological response rate in HCV patients. This new therapy may, therefore, become an additional therapeutic measure for HCV.
