The prevalence of hepatitis b surface antigen among students and blood donors at the american university of beirut lebanon

The prevalence of hepatitis b surface antigen among students and blood donors at the american university of beirut lebanon

HBsAg testing by CEP [counterimmunoelectrophoresis] was performed on 2359 students and 6153 blood donors at the American University of Beirut [Lebanon]. No significant difference existed in the prevalence rates among the various socioeconomic groups of the Arab Asians tested. There was, however, a definite difference among the various geographic groups. Socioeconomic factors do not satisfactorily explain the differences in the prevalence rates among various nationals.
