The ISGs responsible for the anti-HCV effect are not well understood, although the roles of a number of ISGs are emerging as well as anti-HCV effectors. In this chapter the events leading to the induction of type 1 IFN following HCV infection and IFN action are outlined. Furthermore, the current state of known ISGs to control HCV replication, as well as their ability as a predictor of IFN therapeutic outcome, will also be discussed. 1).
