The results of this is a slow and selective diffusion of new(More)
The risk of hospital-acquired infection with GB virus C (GBV-C) was explored among 42 patients. The factors independently associated with detection of GBV-C RNA in serum were bronchoscopic examination [adjusted odds ratio (OR)=18.1 (95% confidence interval 1.3-255.3), P=0.03] and a history of illicit drug use [OR=14.5 (1.0-218.7), P=0.05]. In this cohort of(More)
