Baddoura, R.; Haddad, C.; Germanos, M. (2002)We aimed to evaluate exposure to hepatitis B and C viruses [HBV and HBC] and candidate risk factors among the Lebanese population. All individuals presenting to all laboratory units in the country over a 2-week period were asked for a 5-mL whole blood sample and answered a questionnaire addressing risk factors. For individuals under 15 years of age the mother was interviewed. In all, 2893 blood samples were examined. Refusal rate was 2.9%. Exposure to HBV antigen was 18.9%; 1.9% were carriers and acute hepatitis B point prevalence was 0.1%. ...
Taremi, M.; Alizadeh, A.H. Mohammad; Ardalan, A.; Ansari, S.; Zali, M.R. (2008)A 2-month community-based survey in February/March of 2003 was carried out to study the seroprevalence of hepatitis E virus [HEV] infection in Nahavand, Islamic Republic of Iran. From each of 6 urban regions of Nahavand, 304 inhabitants >/= 6 years were recruited through systematic random sampling [total 1824]. Participants were tested for anti-HEV IgG using ELISA. The overall seroprevalence of HEV was 9.3% [95% CI: 8.2%-10.9%]. Based on multivariate adjustment, only sex [OR = 1.61, 95% CI: 1.13-2.28] and age [OR = 1.03, 95% CI: 1.01-1.04] emerged ...
