Objective: To determine the expression of interferon alpha
receptors 1 and 2 along with signal transducer and activator of transcription-1 in peripheral blood mononuclear cells of both hepatitis C mono-infected and hepatitis C and B co-infected patients, and to assess whether these targeted genes predict sustained virological response to interferon therapy.
2 (IFN[alpha]-2) is a type of cytokine with both antiviral and anticancer activities.

Ninety-four patients with chronic hepatitis C who had not been previously treated were given pegylated interferon alpha
plus ribavirin, and were randomly assigned to receive or not to receive (control group) 5000 jug of vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) intramuscularly, every 4 weeks for the duration of antiviral therapy.
