A review of hepatitis C virus (HCV) vertical transmission: risks of transmission to infants born to mothers with and without HCV viraemia or human immunodeficiency virus infection



A review of hepatitis C virus (HCV) vertical transmission: risks of transmission to infants born to mothers with and without HCV viraemia or human immunodeficiency virus infection



International Journal of Epidemiology 27(1): 108-117



Background: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) vertical transmission studies have reported conflicting findings, possibly due to differences in HCV transmission risk factors among maternal populations, or to methodological differences. Methods: Systematic review of worldwide published and unpublished HCV vertical transmission studies.
