The results showed that HCV is endemic in this region (3.6%) and the prevalence of anti-HCV in the haemodialysis patients was 45.5%, which is the(More)

The few studies previously done have either been in the form of case reports or those performed on institutionalized mentally retarded patients. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of fragile X syndrome among cases with mental(More)
Age-specific prevalence of antibody to hepatitis C virus (anti-HCV) was studied in 831 Saudis (441 males, 390 females; 1-53 years old) from Al Baha region, south-west Saudi Arabia. There was a gradual exposure to HCV early in life with a gradual increase with age, reaching a peak of 5.3% in the 30-40 years age group. The overall prevalence was 3.6% and 3.1%(More)
