Abstract: Recurrence of hepatitis C viral infection (HCV) after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) is nearly universal; however, some patients recur at a much faster rate than others. Low lymphocyte count has been postulated to be a possible surrogate marker for infection risk after liver transplant and for severe early recurrence of HCV after OLT. We hypothesized that pre-transplant lymphopen... read more
