Abstract

Host factors are critically important in governing the susceptibility and severity of most viral infections. The importance of these host factors is governed by the prevalence of the virus and the availability of effective therapeutic and/or preventive measures. This commentary highlights two such host factors that were initially judged to be important but over time have moved in opposite directions: hepatitis C virus and the IL28B locus as well as HIV and the Δ32-CCR5 mutation
