Studies of blood donors positive for antibody to hepatitis C virus on enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay are probably biased by the large number of false-positive results. We evaluated the epidemiological and biological characteristics of 177 such donors with regard to the confirmatory second-generation RIBA test (Ortho Diagnostic Systems) and have compared the results to those from an age- and sex-matched control group of 177 donors negative for antibody to hepatitis C virus on enzyme-linked… CONTINUE READING
