“…Recent data from Indonesia, Syria, and Jordan revealed rates of 63.4%, 48.9% and 34.6%, respectively (Othman & Monem 2001, Bdour 2002, Chanpong et al 2002. In Brazil, anti-HCV prevalence ranges from 20.3% to 64.7% (Vanderborght et al 1995, Carneiro et al 2001, Santana et al 2001, Busek et al 2002. Thus, the prevalence of 13% found in hemodialysis patients in Tocantins could be placed in a low position.…”

“…Prevalence is lower in populations highly selected by previous screening for risk factors associated with the infection, such as blood donors, and is higher among groups highly exposed to parenteral transmission of the virus, such as intravenous drug users or hemodialysis patients 2,13,21,29 . In Brazil, available data usually refer to large centers 8,12,22 .…”
