Kotb, Dalia N.; Esmail, Mona A.; Abdelwahab, Sayed F.; Abdel Hamid, Mohamed (2017-04)Hepatitis C virus [HCV] infection is widespread in Egypt. This study compared HCV RNA with HCVcAg for the detection and quantification of viraemia among a sample of Egyptians. Sera from 80 suspected HCV-positive individuals were tested simultaneously for HCV-RNA load using real-time polymerase chain reaction [PCR] and HCVcAg level using ELISA. Of the 80 samples, 25% were HCV-RNA-negative. HCVcAg was detected in all samples: range 0.4-2462 ng/mL, mean 460 [SD 506] ng/mL. The sensitivity and specificity of HCVcAg were 96.7% and 90.9%, respectively. ...
