hepatitis c
Nov 6, 2005

can you catch hepatitis c through salivia or any other body fluids

Response from Dr. McGovern

The main risks for hepatitis C transmission are exposure to blood -either through sex, drug use, or needlestick in a health care worker. Hepatitis C has been isolated through saliva and semen and cervical fluids, but it has not been well-proven that these fluids transmit the disease.
