We have been doing some mathematical modeling of changes over time in

   1. hepatitis-C virus (HCV) load,
   2. HLA-1 beta-2-microglobulin titer, and
   3. alanine tranferase activity

upon treatment of HCV-positive individuals with Interferon, with or
without Ribavirin ("combination therapy").  Partial results of these
studies will be presented at the "Digestive Disease Week" annual
conference in San Diego [ http://www.ddw.org ], starting this Monday
(May 25th).

The purpose of this announcement is to draw interested people to
electronic preprints of several posters that will be presented at the
meeting.  Here they are:

-----

"Dynamics of HLA-1 beta-2-Microglobulin subunit during treatment with
high dose Interferon with or without Ribavirin: correlation with serum
HCV RNA and ALT"
