Abstract

Since the beginning of 2014, hepatitis C virus (HCV) recombinant forms RF2k/1b have been detected in the Rhône-Alpes French region in 10 patients originating from the Caucasus area. Circulation of this particular HCV strain is very likely to be underestimated. It is also prone to be misgenotyped when using genotyping methods based on the 5' region of the viral genome, which may lead to suboptimal treatment. .
