Abstract

The presence of the antibody to hepatitis C virus (anti-HCV), the major causative agent of parenterally transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis, was studied in 236 consecutive hemophiliacs followed with annual liver function tests for 10 years. A very high proportion of hemophiliacs are infected with HCV, even those for whom liver involvement would not be diagnosed on the basis of alanine aminotransferase alterations.
