Summary

In a group of 55 patients with NANBH, 81% were found to be reactive for HCV antibodies. In addition, many patients who had not been subject to parenteral risk of infection were also found to be reactive. Statistically, HCV positive patients have an increased tendency to develop chronic hepatitis.
