[Epidemiologic peculiarities of infections caused by the hepatitis B and C viruses among lung tuberculosis patients].

[Article in Russian]


The article presents the results of serological investigation for presence of specific markers of hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV) infections in serum samples obtained from 600 patients with acute and chronic forms of lung tuberculosis (LT) and in control group I - 600 healthy adults and in control group II - 796 patients with somatic pathology from multiprofile hospital. It has been established that among LT patients frequency of revealing HBsAg and anti-HCV is statistically steady; similar indicators are among persons from both control groups. The frequency of revealing of these markers among patients with chronic forms of LT is considerably higher than frequency of their revealing in patients with acute forms of LT. At the same time, both infections in patients with LT were often presented in form of subclinical hepatitis, identified by increase in of aminotransferases activity in blood.
