Abstract
Hepatitis C disease is virus mediated infection causing major health problem worldwide. Conversions of immune surveillance play important roles in viral clearance. Immune modulating molecules such as HLA-G and IL-10 that shift immune response to T helper 2 (Th2) may play a role to inhibit response to combination therapy with IFN-α and Ribavirin. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of HLA-G and IL-10 in HCV infected patients. In this study, HCV viral load and genotype were assessed using an in-house real-time RT-PCR assay. The expression levels of HLA-G and IL-10 were also evaluated by a developed real-time PCR method. Moreover, soluble HLA-G in both groups of patients (48 responder and non-responder) and 50 healthy individuals were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). According to obtained data, HCV genotype 1a was predominant in both responder and non-responder patients. Expression levels of HLA-G and IL-10 in non-responder group was significantly more that responder and control groups (P <0.001). Also, expression levels of HLA-G and IL-10 in non-responder at the beginning of treatment was remarkably higher in comparison with healthy individuals. After treatment, soluble HLA-G level was significantly increased in non-responders when compared to responders (P <0.001). These findings suggest that elevated expression level of HLA-G and IL-10 in HCV infected patients play an important role in response to combination therapy.
