  1. 1. Hepatitis C virus infection : a nationwide study of associated morbidity and mortality

    Author : Ann-Sofi Duberg; Erik Bäck; Karl Ekdahl; Rolf Hultcrantz; Anders Blaxhult; Johan Carlson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : HCV; hepatitis C; epidemiology; non-Hodgkin s lymphoma; NHL; multiple myeloma; primary liver cancer; HCC; mortality; inpatient care; hospitalization; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases; Epidemiology; Epidemiologi; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : The hepatitis C virus (HCV) was characterised in 1989. HCV was transmitted through transfusion of blood/blood products, but injection drug use is now the most common route of transmission. READ MORE

  2. 2. GB virus C/hepatitis G virus infection: clinical, histological and epidemiological aspects

    Author : Per Björkman; Enheten för infektionssjukdomar; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; endoscopy; nosocomial; sexual transmission; parenteral transmission; blood donor; ALT; liver disease; hepatitis; GBV-C HGV; HCV; Infections; Infektioner;

    Abstract : GBV-C/HGV is a blood-borne virus related to the hepatitis C virus. We studied GBV-C/HGV infection in different populations, its transmission, and its association with liver disease. GBV-C/HGV viraemia was detected by PCR in 19/576 blood donors. Donors with normal and elevated ALT levels had similar rates of viraemia (1. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design and Synthesis of Inhibitors Targeting the Hepatitis C Virus NS3 Protease : Focus on C-Terminal Acyl Sulfonamides

    Author : Robert Rönn; Anders Hallberg; Anja Sandström; Federico Corelli; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Pharmaceutical chemistry; hepatitis C virus; HCV; NS3 protease inhibitor; acyl sulfonamide; bioisostere; palladium; carbonylation; microwave; molybdenum hexacarbonyl; Farmaceutisk kemi;

    Abstract : Hepatitis C is a global health problem that affects approximately 120–180 million people. This viral infection causes serious liver diseases and the therapy available suffers from low efficiency and severe side effects. Consequently, there is a huge unmet medical need for new therapeutic agents to combat the hepatitis C virus (HCV). READ MORE

  4. 4. Hepatitis C virus. Aspects on natural history, antibody response, and viral quantification

    Author : Martin Lagging; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Hepatitis C virus; nosocomial infection; pseudotyped virus; fibrosis; viral quantification;

    Abstract : Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is the major cause of parenterally transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis, and is associated with chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Despite the screening of blood products nosocomial spread of HCV continues to occur. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design and Synthesis of Hepatitis C Virus NS3 Protease Inhibitors : Targeting Different Genotypes and Drug-Resistant Variants

    Author : Anna Karin Belfrage; Anja Sandström; Ulf Ellervik; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Since the first approved hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 protease inhibitors in 2011, numerous direct acting antivirals (DAAs) have reached late stages of clinical trials. Today, several combination therapies, based on different DAAs, with or without the need of pegylated interferon-α injection, are available for chronic HCV infections. READ MORE
