BACKGROUND Approximately 20 percent of persons infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) clear viremia. Factors associated with resolution of viremia are not well defined. Implementation of routine nucleic acid testing (NAT) of blood donors has yielded a large data set for analysis of demographic correlates of resolved viremia. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS HCV antibody and NAT data, liver enzyme (alanine aminotransferase [ALT]) results, and donor demographic characteristics were compiled for 2,579… CONTINUE READING
