BACKGROUND: The first epidemiologic evidence of GB virus type C (GBV‐C)/hepatitis G virus (HGV) infection showed a high prevalence of asymptomatic carriers in blood donors and in populations at risk for blood‐borne viruses. However, by using only viral RNA polymerase chain reaction, those studies underestimated the true spread of GBV‐C/HGV infection. The combined detection of GBV‐C/HGV RNA and of anti‐E2 (which reflects recovery from infection) is necessary to define accurately the prevalence of GBV‐C/HGV.
