New study added to Occult Health Page

"Evidence of occult HCV genotypes in haemophilic individuals with unapparent HCV mixed infections."

(from the paper):

".....As an HCV viral reservoir, the peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) might harbor viral variants distinct from the genotypes detected in plasma. We investigated the presence of HCV genotypes in a group of chronically infected haemophilic patients in the PBMC compartment using a non-stimulated cell culture system that allows the detection of the HCV genome in culture supernatants. We compared them to the HCV genotypes found in plasma samples. Cell culture experiments performed with PBMC demonstrated the presence of additional HCV genotypes that were undetected in the corresponding plasma samples with the same genotyping technique......Once more, the role of mononuclear cells as HCV viral reservoirs is emphasized."
