In the USA approximately 10% of candidates for renal transplantation have serum antibodies to hepatitis C (HCV). To assess the possible impact of HCV infection on early posttransplant events we assessed allograft complications during the first 6 months following renal transplantation in three groups of adult renal allograft recipients: (1) HCV antibody positive recipients (R-HCV) (n=32); (2) HCV negative recipients who received kidneys from HCV antibody positive donors (D-HCV) (n=48); and (3… CONTINUE READING
