Before the hepatitis C virus (HCV) was identified in 1989, there was speculation about the existence of more than one blood-borne viral agent causing non-A, non-B hepatitis . This speculation has continued and is supported by evidence of several unexplained hepatitis-associated syndromes, including cryptogenic hepatitis and cirrhosis, fulminant hepatic failure of unknown cause, and aplastic anemia. None of these syndromes is clearly linked to any of the known hepatitis viruses. Thus, great interest was generated when separate groups of investigators announced the discovery of new hepatitis viruses in 1995 [2-4]. Both discoveries were made by industry-based investigators who collaborated with researchers at academic and government institutions.
