The researchers found that the adjusted annualized relapse rate was 0.12 with fingolimod and 0.67 with interferon
Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) is a positive single-stranded enveloped RNA virus with a genome size of approximately 9.6 kb.1 It is a hepatotropic virus that targets hepatocytes and is known to be the main causative agent of chronic hepatitis worldwide.2 Interferon
(IFN) therapy for HCV chronic hepatitis is highly variable efficacy.
The presence of high pre-treatment interferon

What they found was a part of the malaria genome containing a dense portion of the nucleic acids adenine and thymine, two of the building blocks in DNA, which were responsible for activating a novel signalling pathway, including STING, TBK1 and IRF3-IRF7, in the host that enabled innate immune cells to produce type 1 interferon
According to the study, about 40% of hepatitis C patients on interferon
and ribavirin--an antiviral medication used in combination with interferon--were not adherent to their medication regimen, a finding that suggests such patients are at risk for progression of their disease because of their inability to eliminate the virus.
