Abstract:

Blood transfusion serves a significant role in the supportive care of healthcare system. Infectious diseases remain a major topic of interest for those involved in blood safety. The purpose of this study was to estimate the prevalence of HBV and HCV among the blood collected from the donors at a hospital based blood bank in Dhanbad, Jharkhand. A total of 7721 blood samples from donars were collected. Blood samples (3ml each) were collected aseptically in to sterile dry tube. It was allowed to stand at room temperature for clotting and retraction and then centrifuge to extract serum. Detection of Hepatitis B and C virus was done using commercially available SENSA Hep-B HBsAg kit and Flaviscreen HCV kit for screening and confirmation by respective ELISA kit. The overall prevalence of HBV and HCV was 0.28% and 0.06% respectively. The HBV Seroprevalence in male donor was 0.22% and in female donors was 0.06%. HCV seroprevalence in male and female donors was found as 0.05% and 0.01% respectively. The occurrence of hepatitis B and C among the blood donors should be monitored carefully to further reduce the rates to ensure safer and more reliable blood for transfusion.
