Chlorogenic acid and its related compounds are abundant plant polyphenols that have a diverse Antiviral activity. In this study, HepG2.2.15 cells and duck Hepatitis B virus infection model were used as in vitro and in vivo models to evaluate their anti-HBV activity. In the cell model, all the three compounds inhibited HBV-DNA replication as well as HBsAg production. Chlorogenic acid and Caffeic Acid also reduced serum DHBV level in DHBV-infected duckling model. Moreover, the anti-HBV activity of crude extracts of coffee beans, which have a high content of chlorogenic acid, was studied. Both the extracts of regular coffee and that of decaffeinated coffee showed inhibitory effect on HBV replication.
is there a link to full study?what is the level of chlorogenic acid used?
we do know already there is a boosting of peginterferon response from 4 cups of coffee per day and a liver cancer prevention effect.this will never clear hbv but the dose of green coffee pills to be used while on peg is interesting
if we can t get this data from the study it is useless
