Project: Study of the human immune response to the Hepatitis B virus core and a antigens.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- We wish to unravel the immunological mechanisms responsible for the pathogenesis of liver tissue damage during acute and chronic Hepatitis B virus infections. A better knowledge of the regulatory and effector circuits that are playing during HBV infections may lead to the development of novel and superior vaccines and new strategies to treat acute and chronic HBV infections.
