Abstract

Apart from inflammatory reaction, the death of hepatocytes is also a characteristic of chronic hepatitis. Necroinflammation is followed by compensatory proliferation, which plays a rather important role in maintaining the liver function. Authors studied the DNA content of hepatocytes in patients with chronic hepatitis C, and determined the ratio of hepatocytes in phases G1, S and G2 to determine the hepatocyte proliferation and regeneration capacity of the liver. Liver biopsy samples were taken from 23 patients with chronic hepatitis C and from 16 with chronic hepatitis with non viral origin, from which nuclear suspension counts were done based on the histological slides. A total of 16 normal liver tissue samples served as control. The DNA index, G1, S, G2 and polyploid fraction were determined using the DNACE (Digital Image Analyzer for Nuclear Deoxyribonucleic Acid Content Estimation, KFKI/NIO, Hungary) digital imaging process. The DNA index was found to be significantly higher in the chronic hepatitis C than in the non-C group, with the verification of aneuploidy (DI > 1.10). The chronic non-C hepatitis cases showed lower G1 (88 +/- 6) and higher S (7.8 +/- 6.6) fractions. In comparison to the normal liver tissues, the chronic hepatitis C cases also revealed a significantly (p <0.05) lower G1 (91 +/- 5) and a higher S (5.4 +/- 3.6) fraction, though staying behind the values found for the non-viral group. The deviation can be explained by the presentation of the HCV proliferation inhibitory effect. The polyploid cell fraction revealed a significantly higher value in the chronic non-viral cases as compared to the C virus group, reflecting on the decreased regeneration capacity of the liver. When comparing the HCV groups, significant differences were found between the mild and moderate cases in respect to the G1 and G2 fractions. At the same time, the moderate and severe cases showed statistical deviation regarding the DNA index. Chronic hepatitis C virus infection reduces the proliferation of hepatocytes and the regeneration capacity of the liver. The aneuploid DNA index reflects on genetic instability, which could be the basis of the malignant transformation of the cells.
