ABSTRACT
Epidemiological studies indicate that in chronic HD patients, bacterial and viral infection rank second place in mortality and morbidity, behind cardiovascular disease. Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) is very prevalent in some Hemodialysis (HD) centers. We have investigated lymphocyte subtype count and immunoglobulin levels in hemodialyzed patient with HCV. We studied 55 patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) on chronic HD and 21 healty subjects. Patients group included 34 female and 21 male with mean age 46.5±16.1(18-77) years. Serum concentrations of IgG, IgM, IgA, CD4, CD8, CD19, CD16-56 lymphocytes were measured. Kt/V values were calculated according to DOQI guideline. Lymphocyte and lymphocyte subgroups values of HD patients were significant lower than healty persons. IgG, IgM and ALT levels of HCV positive HD patients compared with significant higher than HCV negative HD patients. CD4/CD8 ratios within groups were no differences. Lymphocyte subtype count of between HCV positive and HCV negative HD patients was no differences. IgG and IgM levels of HCV positive HD patients were higher than HCV negative HD patients. High Ig levels were also associated with ALT levels
