5 HCV is transmitted readily by blood to blood contact as it is hepatotrophic
Ehrmann J, Kirc I (2000) Characterictics of still unknow hepatotrophic
viruses and clinical picture of the disease.
Since severe coagulopathy is almost never seen in isolation with severe malaria, its presence should alert the physicians to look for an underlying infection with a hepatotrophic
virus or disseminated intravascular coagulation associated with sepsis.
However, the differences in hormones, nutritional elements and hepatotrophic
factors in the portal blood flow between caudate lobe and the other segments of the liver may correlate with this hyper plastic change 6.
Acute and chronic hepatotrophic
viral hepatitis are common in this region, and there are valid concern that concomitant infection will results in more severe liver disease.
12 Besides HBV infection, dialysis patients are prone to infection with other hepatotrophic
HCV is a hepatotrophic
virus that is readily transmitted by blood to blood contact.
Prolonged stimulation by some hepatotrophic
factors can lead to hypertrophy or development of neoplasms.
Physicians should thus be aware of this association and its relative frequency, and rotavirus should be added to the long list of hepatotrophic
These procedures resulted in an increased delivery of hepatotrophic
factors to the systemic circulation and diminished their clearance by the native liver and led to significant improvement in cell survival.
In conclusion, the HGV and its co-infection with other hepatotrophic
viruses do not seem to have a pathogenic role, and the clinicians need not to look for the presence of HGV infection in non A-E cases of FH and AVH.
An E virus was subsequently found not to be hepatotrophic
