2003; Poynard et al. 2001). A large study that involved 6,570 injection drug users with hepatitis C, some of whom were co-infected with HIV or HTLV-2 suggested that HCV RNA level was a predictor of death from end stage liver disease in patients with chronic hepatitis C (Hisada et al. 2005). 56). However, the role of HIV co-infection and the effect on viral load was not carefully explored raising the question whether HCV viral load would still have been a predictor of death. Natural History of Chronic Hepatitis C 33 In summary the bulk of the evidence suggests that viral load does not affect outcome of chronic hepatitis C and there is no role for serially assessing viral load in a patient.

2010; Li et al. 2013). The HCV core protein has also been shown to reduce the expression of PPAR-α, a nuclear receptor regulating gene responsible for fatty acid degradation, an effect that may be mediated through upregulation of microRNA-27 (Tanaka et al. 2008; Singaravelu et al. 2014; Shirasaki et al. 2013). It is now recognized that in subverting the cellular machinery of the host for its replication, HCV induces a number of unique pathological processes that inadvertently affect lipid metabolism.
