The growing prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in the general population has resulted in an increased frequency of potential organ donors that carry the virus. Given the significant disparity between organ supply and demand for transplantation, it becomes essential to consider whether livers from anti-HCV-positive donors may be considered suitable for transplantation.

Abstract

The growing prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in the general population has resulted in an increased frequency of potential organ donors that carry the virus. Given the significant disparity between organ supply and demand for transplantation, it becomes essential to consider whether livers from anti-HCV-positive donors may be considered suitable for transplantation.
