Abstract

The identification of the hepatitis C virus as the major cause of liver disease both in dialysis patients and in transplant patients has focused attention on the epidemiology and the impact of continuing infection in these patient groups. The present understanding of transmission, the extent of liver injury, the influence on outcome measures and treatment has grown substantially in a relatively short time.
