"The useful clinical methods sections include description of methods for the detection of antibodies to HCV, quantitative HCV serum RNA assays, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays for the detection of HCV in liver and other tissues, HCV genotyping methods, and detection of HCV by in situ hybridization....Additional sections describe methods used by research, development, and production laboratories to clone and express HCV genes, to study viral replication and viral protein function, to produce recombinant HCV proteins, and to create in vitro culture models to allow study of viral replication and possible anitiviral compounds....The "Notes" sections will be particularly useful to individuals setting up the method for the first time. All the chapters contain current information and are well written....the scope of the book of use to anyone desiring to expand his or her knowledge of HCV. The introductory material for the sections is the best compilation of HCV-related information available in print today and makes Hepatitis C Protocols a valuable addition to the published literature on HCV."-Laboratory Medicine
"In summary Johnson Yiu-Nam Lau should be applauded for assembling an outstanding international ensemble of experts to produce a truly authoritative handbook for HCV clinicians and researchers."-The Quarterly Review of Biology
". . . an excellent review of the current and most up-to-date methods in molecular medicine involving hepatitis C. . . clinicians should review this textbook to give them a better understanding of the molecular techniques and shortcomings of the various diagnostic assays that they use in their day to day practice."-Canadian Journal of Infectious Disease
