Título Virus hepatitis B: an occupational disease - Epidemiological and prophylactic study in haemodialysis centres
Título original Hépatite virale B: maladie professionnelle - Etude épidémiologique et prophylactique dans les centres d'hémodialyse. [en francés]
Información bibliográfica Université de Paris VI, Faculté de médecine Pitié - Salpêtrière, Paris, France, 1974. 42p. 27 ref.
Resumen The first part of this MD thesis is devoted to background information on virus hepatitis as an occupational disease, and to the following aspects: frequency of virus hepatitis B among the staff of haemodialysis units, role of the Australia antigen, modes of transmission. The second part is devoted to medico-social problems: French legislation, absence from work, course of the disease and treatment. Prophylaxis is discussed in one chapter: general hygiene (organisation of working conditions, staff training), preventive measures to cope with antigen-carrying patients and immunisation. Prevention by means of specific immunoglobulins has gone beyond the experimental stage and the manufacture of a vaccine against hepatitis B is at present being studied.
