abstract

  • These data indicate that several clinical covariates increase the risk of bacteremia in hemodialysis patients, with the magnitude of that risk being further increased by HCV infection. Improving outcomes in HCV-infected hemodialysis patients will likely be dependent on aggressive diagnosis and treatment of both HCV and bacteremia.
