Variable epidemic histories of hepatitis C virus genotype 2 infection in West Africa and Cameroon.

Abstract:

It has recently been suggested that HCV genotype 2 (HCV-2) was more recently introduced to Cameroon (Middle Africa) than West African countries. In order to explore the relationships among HCV-2 strains from Cameroon and West Africa, and to estimate the epidemic history of each lineage, a recently-developed Bayesian evolutionary analysis approach was used. The estimated date of the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) of the Cameroon HCV-2 strains, 1630 (95% highest posterior density interval: ...
