O'Sullivan, Patrick (2004) A study of the prevalence of blood-borne viral diseases in injecting drug users receiving methadone maintenance in the National Drug Treatment Centre at Trinity Court in Dublin. Other thesis, The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland.

Injecting drug users are known to be at greater risk of becoming infected with the blood-borne viruses because of the risk-taking behaviours they engage in. This study was undertaken to document the prevalence of the blood borne viral infections in the population of injecting drug users attending the national Drug Treatment Centre at Trinity Court in Dublin for methadone maintenance treatment and to look at the risk factors involved.
