It was the purpose of this study to evaluate the spread of HCV infection among the staff at Dialysis Units and among relatives of anti-HCV-positive hemodialysis patients. 122 health-care workers and 52 relatives were screened for presence of anti-HCV Ab.
The control groups consisted of 100 health-care workers from other wards and 30 relatives of anti-HCV-negative subjects. 2.45% of the health-care staff and 5.8% of the relatives were found to be anti-HCV Ab carriers.
None of the subjects in the control groups were positive.
