Epidemiological investigations of GB virus C (GBV-C)/hepatitis G virus (HGV), an infectious agent discovered in 1995/1996, are facilitated by a recently developed immunoassay for the detection of antibodies to the viral envelope 2 protein (anti-E2). We used this assay to establish GBV-C/HGV prevalence in seven European, African, and Asian countries. A total… CONTINUE READING
