  1. Hepatitis C virus in dialysis units : a multicenter study.

    Article - En anglais

    Three hundred and eighty-seven chronic hemodialysis patients were evaluated, in a multicenter study, to investigate the epidemiology of hepatitis C virus.

    In anti-HCV seropositive patients, serum ALT values and blood transfusions were retrospectively compared; blood donors were studied for serum transaminases.

    In seropositive patients without previous blood transfusions, analysis of dialysis schedule was done.

    Eventually, the intrafamilial transmission of hepatitis C virus was studied in 104 family members.

    The prevalence of HCV infection in hemodialysis patients was 15.7%.
