Abstract

Semi-nested polymerase chain reaction technique was used to detect Torquetenovirus (TTV) DNA in 234 healthy blood donors in northeast Thailand. The incidence of TTV was 28% in 101 healthy blood donors negative for HBsAg and anti-HCV antibody, 25% in 71 HBsAg carriers and 29% among 62 with anti-HCV antibody. No association of TTV infection was found with gender, age, and HBV or HCV infection.
