In this study, the NK cell CD markers testings were found to be the possibility and potentiality of some types of NK cells to target HCV and HCC immunotherapy

Natural Killer (NK) cells are important for responding to and destroying cells that have become infected with virus and cancer cells. We evaluated the effects of hepatitis C virus (HCV) only infected patients and HCV-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) of Egyptian cases on peripheral blood NK cell subsets CD56bright and CD56Dim NK cells, CD56dim16+, CD56dim16 and with emphasis on the CD3 cells.
