Evaluation the Level of Interleukin 2 and 6’ Receptors in Hepatitis-C Patients in Wasit Province / Iraq
Keywords:Hepatitis C virus, HCV, Interleukin-2, Interleukin-6, Interleukin-2 Receptors, Interleukin-6 Receptors, IL6, IL2, IL2Rs, IL6Rs.
Viral hepatitis type C, is a disease happened due to entering of Hepatitis C virus the body and reaching the
liver. It will multiplication and stimulates the patient’s immune system to attack the infected cells, therefore
will caused the liver inflammation. Our study included (35) HCV patient’s blood samples and had been
compared with (30) control’s blood samples. When the interleukin 2 receptors’ and interleukin 6receptors’
level and some of a biochemical test (ALT, AST, ALP, TSB) had been measured. We observed a significant
increasing (P<0.05) in the value of biochemical parameters (ALT, AST, ALP, TSB) of patients compared to
healthy. Also there was a significant increasing (P<0.05) in Interleukin 2&6 receptors in patients compared
to healthy. From the results a presence of a direct correlation had been indicated between the interleukin-2
receptors and (ALT, AST), and reversed correlation between Interleukin 2 receptors and (TSB, ALP)a

correlation between Interleukin-6 receptors and (AST, ALP)Hepatitis C virus, HCV, Interleukin-2, Interleukin-6, Interleukin-2 Receptors, Interleukin-6
