Abstract

چکيده : The risk of infection with transfusion -transmitted viruses such as hepatitis B virus (HBV) has been reduced remarkably.However, a zero-risk blood supply remains a popular goal.Anti-hepatitis B core antigen (HBc) were considered an effective marker for occult HBV infection and have served their role in improving blood safety. the purpose of this study was to determine the seroprevalence of anti-HBc antibodies among blood donors.Methods:During a period of 6 months in 2012, 1000 blood donors in bandar Abbas were investigated for the presence of HBV infection markers. we used ELISA for the detection of HBsAg and also chemiluminescence for HBsAb and anti-HBc antibodies.results:The prevalence of positive anti-HBc among donors was 8.3 we identified nearly 2.3 of donors who were reactive for anti-HBc and negative for HBsAg.Conclusions:The study shows that more than 2 percent of healthy blood in bandar Abbas are already exposed to HBV, although their HBsAg testing is negative.We suggest screening for anti-HBc to improve blood supply safety.
