      Naturally Immune To Hepatitis C Prisoners Could Lead To Vaccine

      Australian researchers are hoping to be able to recreate the natural immunity that they appear to have found in 4 prisoners against hepatitis C. 160 prisoners who were considered to be at a high risk of contracting hepatitis C were studied.

      Andrew Lloyd said: "It is possible that they had been infected in the past, perhaps on several occasions and that may be why they were able to clear the virus efficiently without developing antibodies."

      A spokeswoman from the British Liver Trust said: "It's really quite phenomenally important research. Getting a vaccine is the holy grail of hepatitis C at the moment.."
