[Prevalence of antibodies to hepatitis A, hepatitis B and hepatitis C viruses in the German population].
Gesundheitswesen. 1999 Dec; 61 Spec No:S110-4.G

Abstract

Representative random samples were tested for hepatitis A, hepatitis B and hepatitis C infections within the framework of the German National Health Interview and Examination Survey. The laboratory parameters included determination of anti-HAV, anti-HBc, anti-HBs, HbsAg, anti-HCV and hepatitis C virus RNA. The prevalence rate for anti-HAV was 46.5% with a definite age-dependence. The infection rates for hepatitis B of 7.7% in former West Germany and of 4.3% in former East Germany were obtained. This is equivalent to a total of 7% prevalence rate. The HbsAg carrier rate was 0.6%. Hepatitis C virus antibodies showed a prevalence rate of 0.4%.
