  1. Horizontal transmission of hepatitis B virus from siblings and intramuscular injection among preschool children in a familial cohort.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors followed 147 children from 113 families who were susceptible to hepatitis B virus infection for a total of 275 person-years.

    Among these children, 19 became infected with the hepatitis B virus and thus became new subclinical cases.

    In this cohort study, parents played a minor role in hepatitis B virus horizontal transmission.

    On the other hand, the estimated incidence rate ratio of hepatitis B virus infection for siblings of a hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) carrier was 2.8 when compared with those children without a HBeAg sibling carrier as analyzed by multiple logistic regression.

    The adjusted incidence rate ratio among siblings increased with increased number of HBeAg carriers.
