  1. Anti-hepatitis C virus antibodies amongst Italian homo-bisexual males.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors report on an anti-hepatitis C virus antibody (HCV Ab) prevalence (6.9%) in 622 homo-bisexual males from Northern Italy, voluntarily attending an HIV and STDs screening program in the period 1984-89.

    The anti-HCV antibody prevalence shows a significant correlation with:

    • i) presence of serological markers for HBV (O.R.=3.12;

    • 95% C.I.=1.53-6.52) and HIV (O.R.=12.09;

    • C.I.=6.52-22.52) infection; ii) a stable relationship with an anti-HCV antibody positive partner (O.R.=1.19; 95% C.I.=2.50-23.90); iii) more than twenty differentmale partners per year (O.R.=2.55; 95% C.I=1.17-5.06).
