SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Hepatitis C virus infection is a contagious liver disease that ranges in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, lifelong illness. It results from infection with the hepatitis C virus (HCV), which is spread primarily through contact with the blood of an infected individual. In approximately 75%–85% of persons, HCV persists as a chronic infection, which places infected persons at risk for liver cirrhosis, liver cancer or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and complications involving other organ systems that develop over the decades following onset of infection. HCV infection status is determined by a blood test. In the United States an estimated 2.7– 3.9 million persons are living with HCV infection. Cirrhosis, HCC and HCVrelated mortality have been increasing among persons infected with HCV, and these outcomes are projected to increase significantly in the coming decades. HCV-infected persons who are aware of their infection can benefit from health services to prevent additional harm to the liver (e.g., hepatitis A virus and hepatitis B virus vaccination), medical monitoring, and behavioral changes DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30293 (e.g., reductions in alcohol use). Further, anti-viral therapies can clear HCV from the system (i.e., a virologic cure) and halt disease progression for many patients living with HCV infection. CDC is seeking public comment on these Recommendations, particularly concerning the following questions: (1) Are there other data, evidence, or studies to consider regarding: a. The burden of HCV infection morbidity, and mortality in the populations for whom testing is recommended? b. The number of persons living with HCV who are unaware of their infection status? c. The benefits and harms of HCV testing, care and treatment? d. The cost effectiveness of the proposed recommendations? e. Settings in a community where testing should be targeted? (2) Are there other factors, e.g., other scientific studies not referenced, which should be considered in the development of the Recommendations? (3) Are there any other comments about the utility of the information? Dated: May 15, 2012. Tanja Popovic, Deputy Associate Director for Science, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
