  1. Hepatitis C virus infection as a risk factor for non-alcoholic liver cirrhosis in Taiwan.

    Article - En anglais

    To assess whether hepatitis C virus infection was a risk factor for the development of non-alcoholic liver cirrhosis, antibody to hepatitis C virus (antiHCV; detected by a second generation HCV enzyme immunoassay), hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg; detected by radioimmunoassay) were tested in 150 cirrhotics and 150 sex-matched and age-matched healthy controls.

    The prevalence of anti-HCV and HBsAg in cirrhotics was higher than in controls (22.0%, 73.3% vs. 2%, 18.7%; P=0.001).

    The prevalence of anti-HCV in HBsAgnegative cirrhotics (45.0%) was higher than that in HBsAg-positive patients (13.6%; P=0.001).
