Abstract:

Summary We report on a viral hepatitis serosurvey done on 381 nursing students in Bangkok; 360 (94%) were female. The mean age was 20 (±3.6) years (range 16-41 years); 143, 92, 86 and 59 students came from Thailand’s Central, North, Northeast and South provinces, respectively. The overall prevalence of hepatitis A, B, C and E antibody in the students was 8.9%, 10.8%, 0.5% and 11.5%, respectively. The highest seroprevalence to hepatitis A was observed in cadets from the southern region of Thailand. Seroprevalence rates to hepatitis A and B were less than in other reported studies in Thailand.

Nous rapportons une enquête sérologique sur l’hépatite virale, effectuée sur 381 étudiants en infirmerie à Bangkok; 360 (94%) étaient de sexe féminin. La moyenne d’âge était de 20 ± 3,6 ans, intervalle de 16 à 41 ans. 143, 92, 86, et 59 étudiants venaient des provinces du centre, du nord, du nord-est et du sud de la Thaïlande, respectivement. La prévalence globale des anticorps de l’hépatite A, B, C et E chez les étudiants étaient de 8,9%, 10,8%, 0,5%, et 11,5%, respectivement. La plus haute séroprévalence de l’hépatite A a été observée chez les cadets de la région sud de la Thaïlande. Les taux de séroprévalence de l’hépatite A et B étaient moins élevés que dans d’autres études rapportées en Thaïlande.
