Abstract

In order to evaluate epidemiological features of hepatitis C virus infection in patients with chronic renal failure, we enrolled 80 haemodialyzed subjects in four centers of Gargano area (Southern Italy). In a 28 months follow-up we checked antiHCV antibodies by EIA II and viraemia by polymerase chain reaction. Seroprevalence of HCV infection was 35%, while incidence was 2.4%/year; viraemia was detected in 62.5% of antiHCV+ and in only one of antiHCV-. In our opinion there is a definitive need of special precautions (or isolation of antiHCV+) in haemodialysis units to avoid community-acquired HCV infection.
