  1. Fulltext. Hepatitis C prevalence and risk factors in the Northern Alberta dialysis population.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an emerging global public health issue with particular relevance in multiply transfused renal dialysis patients.

    This cross-sectional study evaluated the prevalence and risk factors for HCV infection among renal dialysis patients in northern Alberta, Canada.

    Ninety-two percent of eligible patients (n=336) provided informed consent to participate.

    Participants were interviewed to gather risk factor information and, using multiple logistic regression analysis with exact inference, a predictive model for HCV infection in this population was developed.

    The prevalence of HCV infection in the population was 6.5%, and all positive patients had at least one identifiable risk factor.

    The multivariate analysis showed that the risk of HCV infection was greater for those in the 18-55 years age category (odds ratio (OR)=4.9,95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.2-27.9), patients who had been on dialysis>5 years (OR=3.7,95% Cl 1.2-12.0), and patients who had >=2 high risk life-style behaviors (OR=5.0,95% Cl 1.5-16.7).

    Transfusion prior to 1990 was marginally associated with HCV status (OR=4.0,95% Cl 0.96-16.3).

    This study documented previously unreported life-style risk factors for HCV infection in patients with renal failure, confirmed the expected decline in transfusion-acquired HCV infection in this population, and provided evidence against nosocomial transmission of HCV.
