An estimated one-third of the global population has been infected with this virus; approximately million people are lifelong carriers, and only 2% spontaneously seroconvert annually. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) belongs to the hepadnavirus family of enveloped DNA viruses containing a partially double Author: Johra Khan.
1. Am J Med Sci. Jul-Aug;(1) Hepatitis B antigen subtypes-history, significance and immunogenicity. Holland PV. Initial work showed that all hepatitis B surface antigens (HBs Ag) were by: 8. heterogeneous, with a common antigen (designated a) and 2 pairs of mutually exclusive antigens (d, y, w [including several subdeterminants] and r), resulting in 4 major subtypes: adw, ayw, adr and ayr. The distribution of subtypes varies geographically; because of the common “a” determinant, protection against one subtype appears. The coexistence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and antibodies to HBsAg (anti-HBs) in patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection . HBsAg, an HBV viral coat antigen, is produced in large quantities in infected-cell cytoplasm and continues to be produced in patients with chronic, active HBV infection (Fig. ).This has been used as the primary screening test. HBsAg can be identified in an infected donor’s serum or plasma by enzyme immunoassays (EIAs) using animal antibodies (anti-HBs) as solid phase .

Detectable level of anti-HBs was not identified before vaccination in any of the individuals. The results obtained after completion of vaccination are illustrated in Fig. 1. The mean titer of anti-HBs antibody was found to be: 23,, 67 and IU/l in good Cited by: HBs antigen subtypes: proceedings of the International Workshop on HBs Antigen Subtypes, held at the Centre national de transfusion sanguine, Paris, April , Basel ; New York: S.
