This page should absolutely be merged with the hepatitis G page. As a reference, the ICTV now classifies HGV under GBV-C . Therefore, HGV should be subsumed under GBV-C (rather than GBV-C under HGV). After many studies, there is now very little evidence to support the naming of this virus as a "hepatitis" virus. Scray (talk) 13:14, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
While GB virus C is sometimes referred to as hepatitis G virus, that designation is historical. It is not clear whether this virus actually causes human disease. For a review, please see my article:
Lindenbach, B. D., and C. M. Rice. 2001. Flaviviridae: The viruses and their replication, p. 991-1041. In D. M. Knipe and P. M. Howley (ed.), Fields Virology, Fourth ed, vol. 1. Lippincott-Raven Publishers, Philadelphia.
I'd appreciate any input so we can clear this up. --Brett Lindenbach 10:30, 6 January 2006 (UTC)
I agree. This page should be merged under GB_virus_C. Scray (talk) 13:17, 21 January 2008 (UTC)
