Sažetak
We analyzed the seroprevalence, risk factors and genotypes of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in groups with high-risk sexual behavior (persons with multiple sexual partners, men who have sex with men-MSM, commercial sex workers-CSW, clients of CSW and persons with sexually transmitted diseases-STDs) in seven Croatian cities. A total of 821 participants without history of injecting drug use (IDU) were included in the study. Anti-HCV prevalence among risk groups varied from 2.9% to 8.5% with an overall prevalence of 4.6% (95% CI=3.2-6.1) compared with 0.5% (95% CI=0.0-1.5) in controls (pregnant females ; OR=9.66 ; 95% CI=1.32-70.7). HCV-RNA was detected in 73.1% anti-HCV positive patients. Three of the seronegative cases (2.1%) were also found to be HCV-RNA positive (“ window period” ). Genotype 1 was most commonly detected (55.6%), followed by genotype 3 (38.9%) and genotype 4 (5.6%). The most prevalent subtypes were 1a (38.9%) and 3a (38.9%). Sociodemographic characteristics (age, gender, marital status and level of education) were not associated with anti-HCV seropositivity. Among STDs markers, a higher seroprevalence of HCV infection was found in subjects with a history of HBV infection (10.5% versus 3.8%, p=0.002) and gonorrhea (13.2% versus 4.2%, p=0.011). No other factors reflecting risk sexual behavior such as sexual orientation, number of sexual partners and number of risk behaviors were associated with HCV seroprevalence.
