HBsAg+ candidate blood donors HBV genotypes Number Origin(s) A1 43 S. Africa A2 72 Poland B 126 Hong Kong Malaysia Taiwan Thailand C 90 Hong Kong Malaysia Taiwan Thailand D 465 Egypt Iran Poland S. Africa Turkey Tunisia E 184 Guinea HBsAg quantification: Architect HBsAg, Abbott Lab. (0.05 IU/ml or 0.28 ng/ml) HBV DNA quantification: in-house real-time QPCR assay (<20 IU/ml)
HBsAg / HBV DNA ratio according to ethnic groups
Conclusions HBsAg range is between 10 2 and 10 6 IU/ml for genotypes A, C and E. Significantly lower values are seen in genotypes B and D. A1, B and D have lower median DNA than genotypes A2, C and E No correlation between plasma levels of HBsAg and viral load irrespective of genotype Very low HBsAg (3.7%) or DNA (6.2%) levels are observed in genotype D Within genotype B infection HBsAg and DNA levels are significantly higher in Chinese than Malays
