  1. Antibodies against hepatitis C virus in hemodialysis patients in the central italian region of Umbria : evaluation of some risk factors.

    Article - En anglais

    The epidemiology of non-A, non-B hepatitis (NANBH) is still incomplete.

    To define the prevalence of antibodies against the main causative agent of NANBH, the hepatitis C virus (HCV) and the role of some risk factors, we tested sera from 269 patients on chronic dialysis at the hemodialysis units in our region in central Italy.

    We utilized the recently developed serological assay.

    Twenty-nine hemodialysis patients (13.3%) and 3 peritoneal dialysis patients (4.8%) were anti-HCV positive.
