Title:
How stable is the hepatitis C virus (HCV)? Environmental stability of HCV and its susceptibility to chemical biocides.

Abstract:
In the absence of a cell culture system for propagation of the hepatitis C virus (HCV), the antiviral activity of disinfectants against HCV was extrapolated from studies with the bovine viral diarrhea virus. The recent development of an HCV infection system allowed the direct assessment of environmental stability and susceptibility to chemical disinfectants.
