Description

Research:

  1. Studies on immune response in chronic hepatitis and extrahepatic effects of infection with hepatitis C;
  2. Optimisation of sensitivity and specificity of diagnostic methods for hepatitis B and C.
  3. Histopathological and immunohistochemical studies on elements of liver tissue / cells damage in course of infection with HBV (D) and HCV hepatotropic viruses
  4. Determination of inflammatory infiltrate in response to pathogens.

Diagnostics:

  1. Liver biopsy evaluation;
  2. Determination of autoantibodies: antinuclear, anti-smooth muscle, anti-mitochondrial, and anti- liver and kidney microsomal antibodies;
  3. Examination of ultrathin sections in the electron microscope.
  4. Determination of anti-HAV (total and IgM), anti-delta agent (total and IgM) and anti-HCV antibodies;
  5. Determination of HBV serological markers and quantitation of anti-HBs antibodies. Confirmatory anti-HCV RIBA-3 test.
  6. Molecular biology: qualitative and quantitative determination of HBV DNA and HCV RNA.
