Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection often persists in association with chronic hepatitis. Different factors have been proposed to determine the clinical outcome of HCV infection. The aim of this study was to examine three different factors of HCV infection among injecting drug users. Nineteen untreated HCV seroconverters were tested longitudinally for the presence of HCV RNA by reverse transcriptase (RT) PCR, and results were quantified by the branched-DNA (bDNA) assay. HCV genotypes were… CONTINUE READING
