Frequency of Hepatitis Delta Virus in Hepatitis B Surface-antigen-positive Patients
MetadataShow full item record
Objectives: The prevalence of hepatitis delta virus (HDV) worldwide shows geographical differences. Although there are several studies on anti-HDV seroprevalence rates in hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)-positive patients in Turkey, studies on HDV-RNA prevalence in this patient population are limited. It was aimed to detect the frequency of anti-HDV antibodies and HDV-RNA in HBsAg-positive patients in this study.
