http://hcvets.com/da...is_c_screen.htm

Of 2282 veterans tested for HCV, 46% were confirmed by HCV PCR to be HCV infected. In the multivariate model developed, injection drug use, blood transfusion before 1992, service during the Vietnam era, tattoo, and a history of abnormal liver function tests were independent predictors of HCV infection. Our data support considering a more targeted screening approach that includes five of the 11 risk factors.

UPDATE:
Hepatitis C Virus Transmission Methods- Research & Documentation
Risk Factors: How the Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Transmits

Sep. 2 2008 NC clinic probed in small hepatitis C outbreak -RALEIGH,
N.C. - State health officials are investigating ... seven patients to
test positive for hepatitis C. Officials are contacting 1,200 patients
who underwent cardiac stress tests within the last 14 months... The
cardiac stress test involves injecting a dye into a patient's vein as
stress levels in the patient's body are increased. Devlin said officials
believe patients transmitted hepatitis C to other patients because they
had the same strain. See more on HCV by stress test

Aug-27 Adam and Eve clients asked to contact health unit- The Simcoe
Muskoka District Health Unit is asking all clients who received
tattooing or piercing services at the Adam and Eve Tattooing and
Piercing in Innisfil between April 29 and Aug. 21 to call the health
unit, as part of an investigation into potential exposure to non-sterile
equipment.

Aug. 27 2008 Newest disease-spreading fear: Handcuffs MONTREAL, (UPI) --
A Canadian company warned a national police conference in Montreal that
dirty handcuffs can transmit herpes, HIV, influenza and hepatitis B.
...l conference of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police ...
Cleaner company... markets a device and chemicals that disinfect
handcuffs..."If you go around ...any police officer how often they clean
their cuffs, they'll probably say never," ... found viruses and bacteria
along with dried blood and skin particles in the hinges...dangerous for
the next person to be cuffed but for the officers...The cleaning device
creates ultra-high frequency sound waves.

08/27/08 Clovis patients possibly exposed to hepatitis, HIV-Some
instruments used last week may not have been fully sterilized. By
Barbara Anderson / The Fresno Bee Fourteen Clovis Community Medical
Center patients -- some of whom were on the maternity ward -- may have
been exposed to hepatitis and HIV last week when doctors used
instruments that may not have been fully sterilized.

August 17, 2008 DIRTY DOC A ONE-MAN HEP-IDEMIC By SUSAN EDELMAN- A
sloppy city anesthesiologist infected 14 patients with hepatitis B and C
- and probably spread the liver-attacking viruses to at least 10
more...Dr. Brian Goldweber used the same syringe to give patients
already infected with hepatitis a second dose from anesthesia vials.
This "double dipping" contaminated the contents, which he then injected
into other patients - spreading the virus, a city Health Department
probe found.

August 17, 2008 Another View: Yolo's needle exchange program flawed-
Matt Rexroad - http://www.sacbee.co...ry/1161242.html Your recent
praise of Yolo County (CA) is appropriate, but not for our needle
"exchange" program...we were provided with some startling figures...More
than 61,000 needles were passed out to about 150 people ... more than
400 needles per participant. Shockingly, 11,253 of those needles were
not returned.

Allan, Thanks for this post. I currently have a Hep C claim pending. I believe I will prevail, as this as always a battle with the VA. First and foremost, is a positive attitude and willingness to pursue it, as well as any additional claim(s) you may have. Oh, a Nexus helps also. :rolleyes: Peace, William
