Although this quasispecies nature ofHCV is generated by the limited fidelity of RNA replication, host immunity, especially the humoral immune response, is thought to be one of the important driving forces in the sequence variations of the HVR of H CV [9-11]. We therefore compared the complexity of HVR 1 quasispecies of the HCV genome in serum, PBMCs, and liver, to assess the pathogenic implication of HCV infection in PBMCs. Patients and Methods Eight Japanese patients with type C chronic liver disease (5 men and 3 women, aged 27-58 years, with a mean age of 44) who had HCV type Ib RNA were included in this study (Table O.
