The Northern Ohio region received an exemption to ARC policy for investigating a suspected posttransfusion hepatitis
case and found a blood donor involved in a previous suspected post-transfusion hepatitis case that wouldn't have been found and deferred except for the region's request to investigate, the report said.
A 57-study metaanalysis found that the rate of progression to cirrhosis at 20 years was estimated to be 22% in cross-sectional series of people referred to liver specialty clinics with posttransfusion hepatitis
, 24% in longitudinal studies of people with posttransfusion hepatitis
, 4% in cross-sectional series of people newly diagnosed with chronic hepatitis C virus infection at blood-donor screening, and about 6% in community-based studies (Hepatology 34[4 Pr.
