Figure 1: The effect of antiviral treatment on IgH gene rearrangement in patients with chronic HCV infection. Detection of IgH rearrangement was performed by FR2 Biomed-2 multiplex primers with a subsequent gene scan. Upper electropherogram shows monoclonal peak in a patient with HCV before treatment; lower electropherogram shows polyclonal IgH rearrangement after treatment. HCV, hepatitis C virus; IgH, immunoglobulin heavy chain.
