    Background. Acute hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is often asymptomatic; thus, its epidemiology and natural history are difficult to define. Methods. Acute HCV infection was identified on the basis of HCV seroconversion within 1 year (n = 45), new anti-HCV seropositivity with clinical acute...

    The article evaluates the sexual transmission of hepatitis C virus (HCV). It indicates that anal sex and other sexual practices such as fisting carry a higher risk of infection. Comparisons of viral strains with other known strains of HCV showed little difference in the genome that would make...

    The article comments the study on high rate of spontaneous negativity for Hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA after establishment of chronic infection in Alaska Natives. The author states categorically that the findings of the study is ambiguous. He suggests to conduct more studies in order to ascertain...

    In the Swiss HIV Cohort Study, a nationwide cohort with systematic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection screening since 1998, HCV incidence decreased in injection drug users, remained low in heterosexuals, and dramatically increased in men who have sex with men.Background. Hepatitis C virus (HCV)...

    Background. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) transmission among people who inject drugs remains a challenging public health problem. We investigated the risk of HCV transmission by analyzing the direct association of HCV with filters, water to dilute drugs, and water containers.Methods. Experiments were...

    Effective methods to diminish the burden of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection among injection drug users (IDUs) require consideration of the epidemiology and natural history of both hepatitis C and drug use. Most HCV infections are due to injection drug use, and most IDUs have HCV infection. In...
