OBJECTIVE:Conventional tests for antibody to hepatitis C virus (HCV) require considerable time before results are available. The aim of this study is to examine the accuracy of a new quick test (SM-HCV Rapid Test) for the detection of antibody to hepatitis C virus with reference to the well-established third generation enzyme immunoblot assay (EIA-3; Abbott Laboratories, Chicago, IL).METHODS:A total of 290 subjects (100 patients with chronic hepatitis C infections, 95 patients with other… CONTINUE READING
