VIROLOGY: How to prevent hepatitis B virus reproducing

Infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a major health problem worldwide, despite the fact that a highly effective preventative vaccine exists. A modified form of the immune molecule IFN-alpha is commonly used to treat individuals infected with HBV. The rationale behind this is that IFN-alpha inhibits HBV replication in vivo and in vitro, although the mechanisms by which it does this have not been clearly defined. A team of researchers led by Maura Dandri, at University Medical Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany; and Massimo Levrero, at Sapienza University, Italy has now identified a new mechanism by which IFN-alpha suppresses HBV replication in vitro and in vivo. The authors hope that this new insight could help in the development of new approaches to treat individuals infected with HBV.

TITLE: IFN-alpha inhibits HBV transcription and replication in cell culture and in humanized mice by targeting the epigenetic regulation of the nuclear cccDNA minichromosome
