    The molecular epidemiology of type 2a hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections in patients undergoing haemodialysis in the same unit in a Turkish hospital was investigated. Of nine HCV-infected patients four were infected with type 2a, four with type 1b and one with type 1a viruses. Since type 2 HCV...

    Objectives: The presence of talc crystals in the liver has been associated with prior history of i.v. drug abuse (IVDA). Patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection often deny IVDA, and ninny patients have no other identifiable risk factors. To evaluate the role of prior surreptitious IVDA...
