Objectives

General Objectives: Investigate the particular aspects of chronic HCV infection among Filipinos using tools in molecular virologySpecific Objectives: 1. Establish a quantitative PCR-HCV method for determining viral load and correlate this with anti-HCV positivity as well as clinical diseases2. Undertake extensive HCV genotyping among chronic HCV carriers and correlate the genotype with severity of the disease, mode of infection and response to IFN-treatment.3. Establish a heteroduplex mobility assay (HMA) for assessing quasi-species heterogeneity in chronic HCV cases and correlate this with probable duration of infection.
