Abstract

Sera from one hundred and fifty three chronic Fasciola cases were screened for the presence of HB markers (HBsAg, anti HBc and anti HBs) and anti HCV using ELISA technique. Quantitative stool examination and estimation of liver enzymes (AST-ALT-bilirubin) levels of the study population were performed. HBsAg was present in 5 (3.3%), anti HBs in 13 (8.5%), HBexposed (HBex) in 44 (28.8%) and anti HCV in 13 (8.5%) of examined sera. HBV and HCV markers were significantly higher among older age groups. Concerning familial aggregation of hepatitis markers, 7 (15.9%) of the 44 HBex cases had two individuals per family who had evidence of exposure to HBV. No significant change in Fasciola GMEC and liver function tests have been noticed.
