Keywords Chronic hepatitis C; Iron-metabolism; Hepcidin; Ferroportin; Interferon
Core Tip The first showing the relationship between expression of iron-metabolism-related genes and response to pegylated-interferon (peg-IFN) and ribavirin (RBV) therapy in patients with chronic hepatitis C. The expression of hepcidin and ferroportin in the liver before therapy was significantly lower in sustained virological response (SVR) patients than non-SVR patients. The expression of hepcidin was positively correlated with that of ferroportin. The variation in hepatic expression profile in iron-metabolism-related genes is important for the response to peg-IFN + RBV treatment.
