Título Hepatitis B prevalence in local authority employees
Información bibliográfica Aug. 1993, Vol.43, No.3. p.129-131. 8 ref.
Resumen Prevalence of hepatitis B infection was determined in 420 employees from three local authorities by testing for hepatitis B core antibody (anti-HBc). Five (1.2 per cent) were positive: this included a hepatitis BsAg carrier, three with antibody to hepatitis BsAg (anti-HBs) and one who had only anti-HBc. The prevalence of hepatitis B was not significantly different (P>0.05) from a control group of blood donors. However, four out of five anti-HBc positive individuals worked with mentally or physically handicapped individuals or those discharged into the community after long-term institutionalised care.
