Abstract

In this preliminary study, children with chronic HBV hepatitis, as was also previously shown for adults, respond to interferon therapy in an HLA class I antigen dependent manner. If this can be confirmed on a large scale, HLA typing may serve as a useful indication of interferon-therapy responders.
