prevalence of hbv and hcv infection among multi transfused egyptian thalassemic patients
4 of 40 (10) patients had evidence of both hepatitis B virus (HBV) and HCV infection. In a US study, the frequencies of HBsAg and anti-HBs positively among thalassemics were 4.5 and 43.5, respectively. Because the risk of viral or parasitic infection is very low and blood is screened for HCV, HBV, HIV, and human T-cell lymphoma/leukemia virus (HTLV) 1, the remainder of this chapter focuses on bacterial complications of blood transfusion, which can be diagnosed and treated. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is highly prevalent in thalassemic patients, and this may decrease the serum antibody response to hepatitis B virus ( HBV) vaccine. There is also some alteration of the immune system in multi- transfused thalassemic patients, as a consequence of iron overload. This study was done to determine the prevalence of Hepatitis B virus (HBV) Hepatitis C virus (HCV), in patients on hemodialysis in Zabeed City, Yemen Republic, and address the major risk factors for transmission of these viruses among HD patients.
