New culture method for hepatitis C virus uses primary hepatocytes and patient serum
Researchers open the way for improved study of hepatitis
C virus by devising a novel virus culture system that allows replication of patient-isolated virus in nontransformed hepatocytes, instead of culture-adapted virus strains in transformed cell lines. The related report by Lázaro et al, "Hepatitis C vi...
