Persistent viremia after clinical or subclinical hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is believed to occur in patients with chronic hepatitis C, but little is known about the duration of HCV replication in patients with acute hepatitis who have recovered or the relation of HCV viremia with the kinetics of antibodies to HCV (anti-HCV). We tested HCV-RNA and(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence and meaning of antibodies to the hepatitis C virus (HCV) in patients with nonalcoholic chronic liver diseases. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING The liver unit of a referral-based university hospital. PATIENTS Three hundred and forty-six consecutive patients, including 137 with cryptogenic chronic liver(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effect of screening blood donors for antibodies to hepatitis C virus (anti-HCV) on the incidence of non-A, non-B hepatitis in recipients with that of screening blood donors for antibodies to hepatitis B core antigen (anti-HBc) and elevated alanine aminotransferase levels. DESIGN Cohort analysis of serum samples from donors and(More)
Cerebellar ataxia is one of the most frequent syndromes associated with autoantibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD-ab). Antibodies recognize the isoform GAD65, which is the standard biomarker, but additional immunoreactivity against GAD67 is found in high proportion of patients with GAD-ab-associated neurological disorders. We describe the case(More)
