  1. Prevalence of hepatitis C viral antibody in transfused and nontransfused Egyptian children.

    Article - En anglais

    Hepatitis C (HCV) virus is recognized as the major cause of what was previously referred to as parenterally acquired (blood-mediated) non-A, non-B hepatitis.

    A study involving 252 transfused and nontransfused Egyptian children was conducted from November 1990 through February 1991 to determine the prevalence of HCV and the role of blood and blood and blood product transfusions in the spread of the virus.

    Serum specimens were assayed by a second generation enzyme immunoassay and were considered reactive only after supplemental testing using the second generation recombinant immunoblot assay.
