Dates of transplantation for 2 recipients were unknown. Hepatitis C virus infection was diagnosed in 3 recipients in September, October, and November 2001. These recipients had undergone transplantation in February 2001, October 2000, and April 2001, respectively.
Each branch represents a different viral sequence, and small distances between branches suggest genetic relatedness. Sequences belonging to each NHANES III participant and a recipient known to have been infected before transplantation are marked by separate shaded regions. The size of each shaded region represents the genetic diversity of quasi-species from that specimen or group of specimens. Isolates belonging to the donor and 8 case-patients are clustered together.
