Clinical particularities and response to the anti-inflammatory effect of antiviral treatment in patients with chronic hepatitis C and rheumatoid syndrome.

Lilea GC, Streba CT, Baloseanu CL, Vere CC, Rogoveanu I - J Med Life (2012)

Bottom Line: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an important cause for the development of serious hepatic disease such as chronic hepatitis and liver cirrhosis.Though the pathological mechanisms are poorly understood, it is well established that CHC plays an important role in several immune mediated conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis.We focused on the clinical particularities of patients with CHC and associated RS and we specifically investigated the anti-inflammatory role of IFN-alpha concerning the rheumatic symptoms.

Figure 3: Age distribution

Mentions: Regarding the age range, all patients were aged 30 to 50. Five patients (20%) belong to the 4th decade, 12 patients (48%) belong to the 5th decade and finally, the 6th decade includes 8 patients (32%) (Fig. 3). The age related distribution shows the predominance of the patients belonging to the 5th decade of life.
