Abstract

Background/Aims: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotyping has a considerable effect on therapy. The aim was to determine the change in prevalence of HCV genotypes in Turkey during the last decade and to compare the performance of DNA sequencing of different targets in the HCV genome (NS5B, E1, and 5'UTR).
