  1. Zur arbeitsmedizinischen Bedeutung der Hepatitis C bei Beschäftigten im Gesundheitsdienst.

    Article - En allemand

    Traduction en anglais : Importance of Hepatitis C for the public health service staff.

    Transmission of Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is similar to the one observed with hepatitis B virus.

    The most important route of infection in health care personnel is by needlestick injury.

    In the course of a literature review 44 publications on HCV prevalence or incidence among hospital employees were studied and an overall transmission incidence of 2,2% was found.

    As none of the publications dealt with the problem of chronic Hepatitis C, 245 persons with elevated transaminases occupied Freiburg University Hospital were tested for HCV antibodies. 3 out of 82 non-medical professionals and 19 out of 163 health care workers were anti HCV positive (RR=3.22 : p<0,05).

    Charwomen in medical departments, nurses and dentists had a higher relative risk than physicians and technical assistants.

    As no HCV vaccine is available the only way of HCV-prevention is compliance with universal precautions.
