Abstract :

Circulating cytokines and chemokines play critical roles in hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. Here, we explored the effects of proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory effector molecules on HBV progression, e antigen seroconversion, and liver function. Our results showed that circulating interleukin (IL)-17 may be helpful in HBV spontaneous clearance [odds ratio (OR)=1.468, 95%confidenceinterval(CI)=1.080-1.995, P=0.014] and protective against HBV-related hepatoma development (OR=0.933, 95%CI=0.910-0.957, P
