Resumen

A plan of elimination of the virus of B hepatitis (HBV) is feasible because the immunization has had good impact, as it has been documented in the province of Huanta in Peru. The objective of our study was to determine the frequency of the infection by HBV in relatives of carriers of the surface antigen of the virus of hepatitis B (HBsAg). This cross-sectional study included 39 relatives of chronic carriers, identified at Hospital de Apoyo de Huanta. Sociodemographic data and blood samples were collected. The total frequency of infection by HBV was 10.3%, and the majority corresponded to chronic infection (7.7%). One third had a history of infection by HBV. The family members with HBV infection were mainly adult alcoholics who had not been vaccinated. In conclusion, we found a high frequency of HBV in relatives of carriers of HBsAg. This strategy would help identify chronic carriers that can be treated and to contribute to a plan for the elimination of HBV.
