Patients infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) were examined with four commercial HCV immunoblotting assays and for anti-GOR antibody to ascertain whether serological findings varied with the genotype of the infecting virus. The results indicate that patients infected with different HCV genotypes tend to show different immunoblotting profiles, mainly due to a low prevalence of antibodies to the viral region NS4 in patients infected with genotypes III and IV. Differences were more evident with second- than with third-generation assays. Patients infected with genotype IV exhibited a lower prevalence of anti-GOR antibody than patients infected with other genotypes.
