The more you look, the more you find: effects of hepatitis C virus testing interval on reinfection incidence and clearance and implications for future vaccine study design

The Journal of Infectious Diseases, 03/30/2012

Differences in HCV testing interval could account for most between–study variability in the estimated probability of clearing reinfections and is likely to have biased reinfection incidence estimates. The findings suggest that a high reinfection clearance probability (>75%) is consistent with data.
