[Prevalence of antibodies against the hepatitis C virus among the staff of a general hospital].

[Article in Spanish]

Author information

  • 1Laboratorio Central, Hospital del Aire, Madrid.


The prevalence of antibodies against hepatitis C virus (HCV) in 413 hospital staff (57% total staff) was 1.7%. There were no significant differences in the sanitary workers (physicians, nurses and assistants of clinic and laboratory) versus cleaners, office and other non-sanitary workers of hospital staff. The seropositivity to HCV was not related to sex, age, years in occupation and the prevalence of hepatitis B virus serological markers. This relatively low prevalence let suppose than the hospital staff is not a high risk group for HCV infection.
