Acute Hepatitis HCV genotype 3h: virological baseline characterization and monitoring “On Therapy”
AbstractThe Hepatitis C viral genome is highly variable and is classified into 6 genotype groups, based on phylogenetic analysis of the genomic sequence. Here we show a case of acute Hepatitis C in which a rare genotype 3h was evidenced by direct RNA sequencing.We confirm that analysis of the early kinetics of HCV RNA during antiviral therapy is an important prognostic parameter, and that a (to-t3)log10HCV RNA value is a strong predictor for Rapid Virological Response (RVR) and End Therapy Response (ETR).
