Even though I have completed treatment I have wondered how did they come up with the proper dosage to overcome the virus and how many times above the bodies own production of Interferon, 1000, 10.000? I think I’m asking this question right.
hmm - I think this would be a hard thing to quantify. As pointed out in the above study a lot of cell types, not just immune cells, will express various ifn a/b genes when RNA virus is detected and some of this is intended to diffuse to neighboring cells.
The average number of ifn molecules in the nucleus of hepatocytes with/without tx might be a good indicator, but am not sure how one might measure that.
