Consequence of Protective Applications on Prevalence of HCV Infection Patients at Tamilnadu

Author(s): Prakash Rao BR, Abarna V and Jayalakshmi G*


Background: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a major public health concern, and diagnosing an HCV infection necessitates the detection of multiple serologic markers. HCV infection is the most common cause of serious liver damage in the globe. Methods: The study population includes 115 cases, 85 HCV patients, and 23 healthy controls who all live in the same area. Hepatitis C infection is associated with specific changes in serum levels of antigens and antibodies. The goal of this study was to show certain biochemical alterations in chronic Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in the Indian state of Tamilnadu. SPSS version 20.0 was used to analyse the data. Results: The current investigation intends to determine the state of biochemical alterations in Hepatitis C virus patients in Tamilnadu and elsewhere. The contents of HCV samples were assessed for ALT (Alanine aminotransferase), AST (Aspartate aminotransferase), ALP (Alkaline Phosphatase), TSB (Total Serum Bilirubin), and FBS (Fasting Blood Sugar). Conclusion: Chronic HCV infection causes aberrant serum aminotransferases (ALT and AST), but has no influence on ALP or TSB levels. Among alcoholics, the prevalence of chronic HCV infection rises. Except for the tiny number of heavy drinkers who remain positive for HBsAg, hepatitis C virus infection has little effect on the development of chronic liver disease in heavy drinkers.
