We have shown that HCV-RNA is resistant to drying at room temperature for at least 48 hours. This is a factor which could influence the diffusion of the virus in the general population, which epidemiological studies have shown to be surprisingly high. It should be considered in evaluating the importance of the inapparent parenteral routes of transmission.

Abstract

We have shown that HCV-RNA is resistant to drying at room temperature for at least 48 hours. This is a factor which could influence the diffusion of the virus in the general population, which epidemiological studies have shown to be surprisingly high. It should be considered in evaluating the importance of the inapparent parenteral routes of transmission.
