ABSTRACT
The article presents a study conducted by the authors related to association of CD39+ T cells, tregs with hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. Analysis of HBV patients was conducted to assess association of the treg with HBV copy number and the liver injury marker alanine aminotransferase (ALT).
