Interleukin-28B (IL28B)

Real-Time PCR Kits


Interleukin 28B (IL28B) which is also known as IFN-λ3, is a cytokine encoded by IFNL-3 gene on chromosome 19. Interleukin 28B (IL28B) is involved in HCV treatment and highly associated with SVR (Sustained Viral Response). Particularly, determination of rs12979860 polymorphism whether the patient with genotype T/T, C/T or C/C in the promoter region of IL28B is crucial for the combined treatment of pegylated interferon (Peg-IFN) and Ribavirin (RBV) against HCV. Recent studies state that the patients with genotype C/C show higher SVR rate and positive treatment response to HCV therapy compared to C/T and T/T genotypes.
