      That has to be one of the stranger HCV "reports" I've read. Big title: "Hepatitis C Can Be Sexually Transmitted" and the further you read into the report, the less association they actually report!

      >>>In the subgroup of 216 spouses, none of the HCV-negative subjects became positive during follow-up, the investigators note.

      >>>"The risk of HCV transmission between monogamous sex partners may be related to the number of sexual intercourse" events, the authors state. "The absence of any evidence of transmission in the three-year follow-up period suggests that this relation is not very strong."
