HLA-A01 and HLA-B38 alleles are associated with and may have a role in the outcome of response to Peg-IFN plus ribavirin therapy in Egyptian patients diagnosed with chronic HCV infection. The use of immunologic markers to predict the outcome of treatment may help pharmacogenetic personalization of treatment for HCV infection.
