Title:
Evaluation of complement factor 5 variants as genetic risk factors for the development of advanced fibrosis in chronic hepatitis C infection. 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Intercross studies in inbred mice susceptible or resistant to liver fibrosis revealed complement factor 5 as a quantitative trait gene associated with the development of fibrosis. In 277 patients with hepatitis C, two C5 SNPs, rs17611 and rs2300929, have been associated with advanced fibrosis. METHODS: We investigated the association of these C5 SNPs with advanced fibrosis in 1435 HCV infected patients and in 1003 patients with other liver diseases. We performed genotyping with...    »
