  1. Prevention of posttransfusion hepatitis B and C by screening for antibody to hepatitis C virus and and antibody to HBcAg.

    Article - En anglais

    Screening of blood donors by testing for antibody to HBcAg and antibody to hepatitis C virus is commonly done.

    However, the applicability of these screening tests may vary depending on the prevalence of hepatitis B virus and hepatitis C virus infection in various populations.

    We have therefore prospectively evaluated 158 adult patients who received blood or blood products during open-heart surgery in Hong Kong to compare the efficacy of various serological screening tests in the prevention of posttransfusion hepatitis.
