Scaling up testing for hepatitis C virus (HCV) among HIV-negative men who have sex with men (MSM) who are taking pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), as well as HIV-positive men, could greatly reduce the emergent epidemic of sexually transmitted HCV among gay and bisexual men.

Initially, as this epidemic surfaced around 2000, the new HCV cases were predominantly seen among HIV-positive gay and bi men. More recently, signs have indicated that HIV-negative MSM are also at risk.

Publishing their findings in EclinicalMedicine, a research team led by Louis Macgregor, PhD, of the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom, devised a mathematical model to predict the effects of scaling up HCV testing among MSM in the United Kingdom.
