Fear Tactics?
August 9, 2004


I need to think about this. It is possible this is a link to sell more interferon by instilling fear in people as many are not doing it. A little extra fear may push many over their limit to refuse it.
I have not seen any link.


Hepatitis C Linked To Lymphoma

NEW YORK JUL 19, 2004 (Reuters Health) - Infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV) nearly doubles the risk of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer involving the lymph nodes, new research suggests.

Dr. Eric A. Engels of the National Cancer Institute, Rockville, Maryland and colleagues note that studies have shown abnormally high rates of hepatitis C among lymphoma patients, suggesting that the infection raises the risk of lymphoma by chronically stimulating the immune system.

To investigate further, the researchers conducted a study involving almost 1500 subjects with and without lymphoma, according to a report in the International Journal of Cancer.

The rate of HCV infection among lymphoma patients was 3.9 percent, much higher than the 2.1 percent rate seen among people without lymphoma. Moreover, this near doubling of the risk held true even after accounting for patient age and injection drug use.

The researchers conclude that there is an association between HCV and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in the US and that "HCV infection may be cause of NHL."
