Prof. Kitson’s comments give us the opportunity to clarify some issues that were not completely dealt with in our manuscript. In the study we reported a link between fructose intake and the severity of liver fibrosis in a cohort of Italian patients with genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C (CHC) [1], with an association found for industrial, but not for fruit fructose intake. Our results were in keeping with data already reported in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease [2,3].

Abstract

Prof. Kitson’s comments give us the opportunity to clarify some issues that were not completely dealt with in our manuscript. In the study we reported a link between fructose intake and the severity of liver fibrosis in a cohort of Italian patients with genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C (CHC) [1], with an association found for industrial, but not for fruit fructose intake. Our results were in keeping with data already reported in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease [2,3].
