Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans.
These pathogens include, but are not limited to:
- Hepatitis B (HBV)
- Hepatitis C (HCV)
- Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis B virus (HBV), and Hepatitis C virus (HCV) are three of the most common bloodborne pathogens from which health care workers are at risk.
Researchers who use primary human materials, components and products made from human blood, human cell lines or culture media or other solutions containing pathogens that are present in blood and capable of causing disease in humans are considered occupationally exposed.
