Impaired mitochondrial beta-oxidation in patients with chronic hepatitis C: relation with viral load and insulin resistance


Hepatic steatosis is often seen in patients with chronic hepatitis C (CH-C). It is still unclear whether these patients have an impaired mitochondrial β-oxidation. In this study we assessed mitochondrial β-oxidation in CH-C patients by investigating ketogenesis during fasting.
