Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), a single-strand RNA virus, has recently been cloned and sequenced. It causes nearly all cases of non-A non-B post-transfusion hepatitis (NANBH), and is responsible for most of the community-acquired NANBH. Considerable progress has been made in characterizing HCV and understanding the prevalence, transmission, and natural history of HCV infection.
