USPSTF advises hepatitis C screening for baby boomers
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force on Monday in a draft recommendation advised primary care physicians to consider hepatitis C screening for adults born between 1945 and 1965, and it said those with a history of IV drug use or blood transfusions prior to 1992 should be tested. The recommendations were an update to the group's 2004 statement and urge screening for all high-risk adults.  Reuters (11/26), HealthDay News (11/26)
