    ..Of over 26.8 million donations tested between March 3, 1999, and March 31, 2003, 810 were HCV-reactive by NAT. A subset of these donors was assessed for recent exposure risk...

    Transfusion 39:206-11. 1999

    Transfusion 41:751-5. 2001
    ..ALT testing of blood donors was initiated as a surrogate marker for non-A, non-B hepatitis. Increased sensitivity of subsequent HBV and HCV tests used for standard donor screening make any residual value of ALT testing questionable...
