Currently the predominant risk factor for HCV in the United States is intravenous drug use. Prior to 1990, blood transfusions contributed the majority of cases; however, with the adoption of effective blood donor screening programs and eventually universal serological screening, this method of transmission has been virtually eliminated. According to a large case–control study of US blood donors, injection drug use, history of blood transfusion, and sex with an injection drug user are the three commonest risk factors for HCV, whereas drug inhalation and high-risk sexual activity are not independently associated with hepatitis C (18).
