A second generation assay for antibody to hepatitis C virus (anti-HCV) was used to screen 78 southern Indian individuals with a high risk of infection. RT-PCR targeted at the 5' end untranslated region (5'UTR) of the HCV genome was used to evaluate evidence of viraemia in 32 anti-HCV positive sera. The PCR products amplified from the 5'UTR of the HCV genome from 24 patients were sequenced, revealing the existence of two distinct groups of sequences: 21 corresponded to HCV type 1 while the other… CONTINUE READING
