[Identifying hepatitis C virus by the gene amplification technique in the saliva of patients for whom the search is simultaneously negative in their serum: 9 cases].

Abstract

RNA-PCR for Hepatitis C virus was positive in saliva sample of 9 patients, while it was negative in their serum. Clinical and biochemical results of these patients are presented. Saliva detection of HCV is useful for diagnostic of hepatitis, sicca syndrome.
