The Occurrence of Antibody Markers of Hepatitis B Virus Infection in an HBsAg‐Negative Blood Donor Population

The Occurrence of Antibody Markers of Hepatitis B Virus Infection in an HBsAg‐Negative Blood... Abstract. Anti‐HBs, anti‐HBc and anti‐HBe were tested in blood donors negative for HBsAg by radio‐ and enzyme‐immunoassay. In this population 6.4% of the donors were positive for at least one type of antibody to HBV: 4.0% for anti‐HBs, 2.3% for anti‐HBc and 4.3% for anti‐HBe. Two sera (0.2%) were exclusively positive for anti‐HBc, eight sera (2.2%) were weakly positive only for anti‐HBe. Further studies of the infectivity of such samples might be of interest. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Vox Sanguinis Wiley
