The prevalence of hbv in rural area of hebei province china
In 1983, 2169 blood samples have been taken from residents of the whole Wuxing area (including six villages) in Zhengding County of Hebei Province, to screen for the presence of HBV markers. The results are shown as follows. The HBV infection rate was found to be 56.9%. The HBsAg, anti-HBc and anti-HBs were found to be 8.1%, 31.1% and 39.8% respectively. The HBsAg and anti-HBc decreased progressively with a rate of 6.5% and 4.8% respectively per 10 years. The anti-HBs and the HBV infection rate increased successively at the rate of 4.8% and 1.2% every 10 years. In children under 10, the HBsAg and anti-HBc decreased successively with a rate of 11.4% and 0.8% per year, while the anti-HBs and HBV infection rate increased progressively with a rate of 11.1% and 3.0% respectively per year. There were two peaks of the infection. One was in children of 1-4 year old group and the other adults at about 40 years old.
