Furthermore, gene expression occurred in rapid and non-rapid responders universally when IFN therapy was given. This study confirmed that treatment failure of HCV infection with IFN-based therapy is highly associated with pre-activation of ISGs in liver tissue [31]. Furthermore, it would appear that treatmentresistant patients are refractory to further exogenous IFN as the IFN signaling cascade is already saturated. Thus, while ISG expression in the liver may provide a means to predict treatment response, the difficulty in obtaining liver biopsy samples may limit its usefulness as a clinical diagnostic predictor of treatment outcome.
