  1. Seroprevalence of hepatitis B surface antibody in South African dental personnel.

    Article - En anglais

    Because there are no data available on the seroprevalence of hepatitis B in dental personnel in South Africa, a study was performed to assess the antibody status to hepatitis B surface antigen among 129 dental (preclinical) students and 62 dental hygienists at the Western Cape Dental School of South Africa.

    A total of 11 dental students and nine hygienists were positive to hepatitis B surface antibody, indicating a seroprevalence of 8.5% and 14.5%, respectively.
