BACKGROUND 170 million persons worldwide are infected with hepatitis C, many of whom are undiagnosed. Although rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) and point-of-care tests (POCTs) provide a time- and cost-saving alternative to conventional laboratory tests, their global uptake partly depends on their performance. PURPOSE To meta-analyze the diagnostic accuracy of POCTs and RDTs to screen for hepatitis C. DATA SOURCES MEDLINE, EMBASE, BIOSIS, and Web of Science (1992 to 2012) and bibliographies of… Expand
