Abstract

Nearly 1,000 serum samples were obtained from apparently healthy workers of both sexes in various factories in Beijing during 1988-1989 and were examined for hepatitis B virus infection markers by radioimmunoassay. The overall prevalence (all ages and both sexes combined) of cases positive for HBsAg, anti-HBs and anti-HBc were 3.7%, 36.6% and 37.7%, respectively and the rate of those negative to any of the three markers studied was 56.1%. The infection rate was lower than the values reported early in the 1980s for Beijing populations or the values for populations in other parts of China.
