Post by: Hep Editors on September 12, 2018, 10:31:42 am
The sexual transmission of hepatitis C virus (HCV), which during the current century has been largely seen among HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM), may be spreading among HIV-negative MSM as well. That’s according to a study of Parisian MSM in which researchers used genetic analyses to chart the spread of HCV among them.

Presenting their findings at the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam (AIDS 2018), researchers conducted a study of 68 Parisian MSM, including 13 members of the IPERGAY studyof pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), who had recently contracted HCV.
