BACKGROUND Rapid tests for the detection of antibodies to hepatitis C virus (anti-HCV) can facilitate access to diagnosis. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to evaluate the performance of rapid tests for anti-HCV detection in the sera, whole blood, and oral fluid samples from individuals with different endemicity profiles and risk behaviors. STUDY DESIGN Three groups donated biological samples that were tested using three anti-HCV rapid tests (WAMA, Bioeasy and OraSure): (I) suspected cases of… CONTINUE READING
