GB virus-C and the hepatitis G virus (GBV-C/HGV) are variants of the same positive sense RNA flavivirus, initially thought to be associated with hepatitis. The tissue tropism of GBV-C/HGV in normal subjects has not been evaluated to date using an extended tissue spectrum. Therefore, the sites of GBV-C/HGV replication were investigated in serum and twenty-three tissues collected during post-mortem examination of four apparently healthy individuals who died accidental deaths, who were infected… CONTINUE READING
