genotype 1
Mar 16, 2007

Can it be determined how the HCV was caused by the genotype? Can the time period be determined by the genotype?

Response from Dr. McGovern

There are six different genotypes of hepatitis C. They are distributed mainly by geography. For example, genotype 4 is mainly found in Egypt, while genotype 6 is mainly in Asia. In the United States, genotype 1 is the most common genotype.

You cannot judge the time of onset by the genotype.
