Abstract

The aim of the study was to determine the frequency of infection markers for hepatitis B and hepatitis C and to identify associated factors in blood donors. The study was carried out using data obtained from blood donor medical records collected in a public hospital in Lima. Of 28,263 individuals analyzed between 2012 and 2015, 0.6% (n=156) were reactive for HBsAg; 5.2% (n=1,465), for anti-HBc; and 0.8% (n=232), for anti-HVC. Positive results for HBsAg (p=0.319) and anti-HVC (p=0.037) were more common in voluntary donors. For HBsAg and anti-HBc, positive results were more common in individuals aged 50 years or older. The number of voluntary donors was higher among individuals younger than 20 years (p<0.001). The study indicates that reactivity to hepatitis infection markers is associated with voluntary donation and the age group of blood donors.
