Epidemiology of HCV infection in Central and Eastern Europe.
TLDR
The paper gives an estimate of the number of people infected with HCV in the general population of 8 countries from the CSEEC region, which is approximately ~1.16 million.
Current views on the persistence of immunity following hepatitis B vaccination.
TLDR
It transpires that cellular response following hepatitis B vaccination persists longer compared to humoral response, and adequately performed primary immunization in healthy persons ensures long-term protection against acute and chronic stages of hepatitis B.
[Prevalence of anti-HCV antibodies among adults in Poland--results of cross-sectional study in general population].
TLDR
The aim of study was to determine the prevalence of HCV infection in the general population in Poland and to characterize the positive predictive value of the ELISA screening test.
Hepatitis C virus epidemiology and prevention in Polish and Swiss population - similar and contrasting experiences.
TLDR
Scaling up of the diagnosis and treatment is necessary in both countries; however, the means to achieve this might differ, taking into account the higher concentration of the infections in risk groups in Switzerland than in Poland.
Composition of inflammatory infiltrate and its correlation with HBV/HCV antigen expression.
TLDR
Irrespective of the etiology and activity of hepatitis, components of the inflammatory infiltrate in liver were similar and overall inflammatory activity did not correlate with the expression of HBsAg and HCVAg; HBcAg expression, however, accompanied chronic hepatitis B of moderate and severe activity.
Factors associated with hepatitis C prevalence differ by the stage of liver fibrosis: A cross-sectional study in the general population in Poland, 2012-2016
TLDR
As no clear birth cohort affected by HCV could be identified, risk factor-based screening in the general population should be considered, taking into account the association between the increased risk of liver fibrosis and the history of transfusion prior to 1992 and caesarean sections.
High Seroprevalence of CMV Among Women of Childbearing Age Implicates High Burden of Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection in Poland.
TLDR
To understand the risk posed by CMV in Poland, a cross-sectional study on women aged 15-49 basing on existing serum bank was conducted, and age dependent incidence, the rates of congenital infection and sequelae were modelled from sero-prevalence, literature and demographic data.
Is interleukin-8 an additional to histopathological changes diagnostic marker in HCV-infected patients with cryoglobulinemia?
TLDR
The serum levels of all proinflammatory cytokines, especially IL-8, were significantly higher in the patients with cryoglobulinemia in comparison with the patients without CryoglobULinemia and healthy persons.
[Anti-HCV and HCV RNA in patients with the primary Sjögren syndrome].
TLDR
The subject of study were 104 patients with the primary Sjögren Syndrome in whom markers of hepatitis C infection were investigated, and an international team of experts postulated the delineation of the disease entity: 'HCV-related primary SJögren syndrome', separate from the p.Sj.s.
What affects response rates in primary healthcare-based programmes? An analysis of individual and unit-related factors associated with increased odds of non-response based on HCV screening in the
TLDR
Individual and unit-related factors associated with increased odds of non-response based on hepatitis C virus screening in primary healthcare and PHCU-level factors and recruitment strategies were determined.
