Hepatitis B and C virus infections transmitted through organ transplantation investigated by CDC, United States, 2014-2017
from American Journal of Transplantation via Wiley Online Library
We evaluated clinical outcomes among organ recipients with donor‐derived hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus infections investigated by CDC from 2014 to 2017 in the United States. We characterized new HBV infections in organ recipients if donors tested negative for total anti‐HBc, HBsAg and HBV DNA, and new recipient HCV infections if donors tested negative for anti‐HCV and HCV RNA.
