Forekomst av hepatitt C virus infeksjon hos pasienter med psykiske lidelser, komorbiditet og langtidskomplikasjoner (HepCPsyk-studien)

Vitenskapelig tittel:

Occurrence of chronic hepatitis C virus infection, co-morbidity and long-term complications in patients with mental disorders. A regional study in Northern Norway.



Prosjektbeskrivelse:
Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is transmitted in about 70% by drug abuse worldwide, thus drug abuse is the main risk factor for having chronic hepatitis C. However, transmission by contaminated blood product was frequently registered prior to the availability of regular HCV testing of all blood products. This mode of transmission still occurs in developing countries. Mental disorders as depression and anxiety are frequently diagnosed in general population and in particular among young people. There seems to be an association between mental disorders and drug abuse. However, knowledge about the occurrence of chronic HCV infection in patients suffering from mental diseases is still insufficiently elucidated. The application of HCV treatment in these groups of patients is also debated particularly, in light of the treatment side effects. In this study we will characterize the occurrence of chronic HCV infection in patients with depression, anxiety and psychosis in both
