Abstract: The distribution of hepatitis C viral (HCV) genotypes in Singapore has not been previously determined. We studied the sera of 40 Singapore patients which were PCR-positive for HCV. The HCV genotypes were determined by direct sequencing of amplified sequences of the 5′ non-coding region, after reverse transcription. Of the 40 samples, 35/40 (87.5%) were of HCV type 1, 2/40 (5.0%) were of type 2 and 3/40 (7.5%) were of type 3. The most common HCV genotype in this study was the type 1 genotype. Our results confirm the wide geographical distribution of HCV genotypes. © 1994 Academic Press, Inc.
