  1. These are only estimates. These data are derived from various incidence studies in the non-organ donor population. There are very few specific data about residual risk in organ donors. Risk assumes that the high-risk behaviour is being carried out right until the point of organ donation. Risk for hepatitis B virus (HBV) also exists. Fewer data are available about incident HBV infection than about HIV or HCV in various risk groups.
