Hepatitis E virus is the major cause of acute viral hepatitis in several developing countries. Growing evidence indicates the involvement of innate immune response in self-limiting Hepatitis E infection. We have characterized the NK/NK T like (NKT-like) cells in patients with self limiting Hepatitis E infection. The distribution of peripheral NK/NK T-like cells, expressions of activation receptors, cytotoxic potential & effector function of NK/NKT-like cells from fresh PBMCs of 86 acute patients, 101 recovered and 54 control individuals were assessed. Activated NKT?like (CD16+ CD56+CD3+) cells were high in the patient groups. On CD56+CD3?cells, NKp44 & NKp46 expressions were high in the acute patients whereas NKp30, NKp44, NKp46 & NKG2D were high in the recovered individuals. On CD56+CD3+ cells, NKp44, NKp46 and NKG2D expressions were high in the recovered but NKp30 was low in both the patient groups. Collectively the current study elucidates the role of NK/NK T-like cells demonstrating phenotypic alterations of activated NKT- like cells & activation receptors, lack of CD107a expression and functional impairment of peripheral NK/NKT-like cells in self- limiting Hepatitis E infection.
