  1. Prevalence of HCV antibodies in a uraemic population undergoing maintenance dialysis therapy and in the staff members of the dialysis unit.

    Article - En anglais

    We studied, by both 1st and 2nd generation assay, the prevalence rate of HCVAb in a population of 141 dialysis patients, 37 transplanted patients and 55 staff members.

    From this study emerges a higher sensitivity of the 2nd generation HCVAb test (15.38 versus 36.79% of positive responses, respectively), and a significant positive correlation between lenghts of dialysis period.

    We have not found a significant difference between HCVAb-positive and -negative patients in relation to the blood transfusions.

    None of the 21 CAPD patients (home dialysis) resulted positive, even if transfused.

    Two nurses were positive.

    In our experience, the environmental factor seems more important.
