  1. Ethnic differences in the prevalence of hepatitis B surface antigen among Israeli blood donors : changes between 1972 and 1988.

    Article - En anglais

    The prevalence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) carriers among blood donors in Israel during 1988 was compared with that in a similar survey carried out on donors during 1972.

    The overall age- and sex-standardized prevalence of HBsAg declined from 1.22% to 1.01%. The ethnic differences previously observed were much diminished in native Israelis.

    The age of highest prevalence shifted from 18-21 to 31-40 years of age, probably due to a cohort effect.

    The higher prevalence among males has persisted.
