Behavior of antibody profile against hepatitis C virus in patients on maintenance hemodialysis.
The prevalence of anti-hepatitis C virus (HCV) in dialysis setting is still a nonstandard datum.
In particular, it is not known of the phenomenon is stable or increasing or decreasing, even in a given geographical area.
We studied the behavior of anti-HCV prevalence during a 12-month follow-up in 415 hemodialysis patients treated at a single institution and belonging to a limited geographical area with standard HCV endemic.
Point prevalence of anti-HCV has shown a tendency to growth linked in part of the incidence of infection, in part to new positivities in patients already on dialysis treatment.
