The prevalence of hepatitis B in employees of small, rural hospitals--implications for vaccine administration

, : The prevalence of hepatitis B in employees of small, rural hospitals--implications for vaccine administration. Infection Control 7(2): 64-66

The Centers for Disease Control Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices has based recommendations for hepatitis B vaccine for hospital employees on studies done in large urban hospitals. Data on the prevalence of hepatitis B in employees of small hospitals have been lacking. We measured hepatitis B surface and core antibody in 422 employees of six small, rural hospitals who were exposed to blood. The overall prevalence among those "high-risk" employees was 5.5%. The highest prevalence was found in General Nursing, Intensive Care Nursing, Recovery Room, IV Therapy, Laboratory, and Respiratory Therapy, although differences were seen between hospitals. Results of such testing for individual hospitals may have a major impact on the cost-effectiveness of vaccination programs for their employees.

The genus Rollinsia Al-Shehbaz is reduced to synonymy of Dryopetalon A. Gray (Brassicaceae), and the characters distinguishing the latter from Sibara Greene and Thelypodiopsis Rydberg are discussed.

Literature data point to a possible link between gibberellic acid (GA3) and glutathione metabolism in plant tissue, as both are connected to dormancy breakage. In order to study the influence of GA3 on glutathione metabolism, we treated an anthocy...

To characterize this ectopic form of ALP, 4 monoclonal antibodies were raised against D9...
