Abstract: the epidemiological features of rotavirus a (rva) infection differ between children from developing and developed countries which could result in differences in vaccine efficacy around the world. to evaluate the impact of rotarixtm on rva prevalence, we monitored rva genotypes circulating in goiania by monitoring virus in faecal samples from children that had or had not been previously vaccinated. from february-november of 2008, 220 faecal samples were collected from children in seven day-care centres. rva detection was performed by two methodologies and the results were confirmed by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. from the 220 samples, eight were rva-positive (3.6%) and five were from children that had received either one or two doses of the vaccine. all positive samples were collected from children with diarrhoea during august and september. genotyping of the rva characterised five of the viral samples as genotype g2p[4] and one as g8p[4], suggesting that g2p[4] was the predominant circulating genotype in goiania during the study. the fact that vaccinated children were also infected by rva suggests that the vaccine does not fully protect against infection by the g2[p4] rva genotype.

Abstract: the hepatitis b virus (hbv) has been considered the major occupational risk agent for dentists. the central west region of brazil is considered an intermediate endemic pattern area, but currently there is no information about the hbv prevalence in dentists of goiania, goiás. this study aimed at the detection of the hbv infection rate and risk factors for dentists of goiania and the comparison of the obtained data with the general population and other groups. a randomized sample of 680 professionals participated in this study. all dentists gave written consent for the procedure and filled out a questionnaire about risk factors. the hbv serological markers were analyzed using elisa test and the presence of anti-hbc was observed in 41 (6.0%) of the dentists. none of them was hbsag positive. significant relationships with hbv positivity were observed with gender, the time working as a dentist and the use of incomplete personal protective equipment (ppe). the hbv prevalence found in this group of dentists was lower than the endemic pattern of the general population, other health care workers of the region and the dentists from other regions in brazil. these results may indicate a positive impact of vaccination considering the high adherence of the dentists to the immunization program (98.4%). finally, the use of complete ppe by the majority as well as other standard precautions recommended for health care workers could be responsible for the low hbv seroprevalence.

Abstract: between october 1988 and february 1989, 1,033 voluntary first-time blood donors were screened for hepatitis b infection in five blood banks in goiania, central brazil. the survey was part of a major study designed to estimate seroprevalence of hbsag and anti-hbs and to discuss methodological issues related to prevalence estimation based on data from blood banks. donors were interviewed and blood samples were collected and tested for hbsag and anti-hbs by elisa tests. prevalences of 1.9% and 10.9% were obtained for hbsag and anti-hbs, respectively, and no statistical difference was found between the sexes. prevalence of anti-hbs increased with age (x2 for trend = 7.9 p = 0.004). the positive predictive value and sensitivity of history of jaundice or hepatitis reported in the interview in detecting seropositives were 13.6% and 2.2%, respectively. the methodological issues, including internal and external validity of hbv prevalence estimated among blood donors are discussed. the potential usefulness of blood banks as a source of morbidity information for surveillance for hepatitis b virus infection is stressed.

Abstract: two cross-sectional surveys on hepatitis b virus (hbv) infection were carried out among 1,033 volunteer first-time blood donors in five blood banks (3 private, 2 public) and among 201 prisoners in the penitentiary center of industrial activity, in goiania, central brazil, between june 1988 and february 1989. those surveys were part of a major study designed to estimate seroprevalence of hbsag and anti-hbsag markers by elisa test, and to study risk factors associated with seropositivity. the presence of any serum marker was considered as previous exposure to hbv. a standard questionnaire was applied to both populations to evaluate previous blood transfusion, number of sexual partners, homo/bisexual activity, history of sexually transmitted diseases, drug abusers, use of parenteral medicine, accupunture, tattooing and vdrl seropositivity. seroprevalence varied from 12.8% to 26.4% in blood donors and prisoners, respectively, (p<0.05) and increased with age (x2 trend=14.0 p<0.05%). prisoners had higher percentages of all risk factors investigated than blood donors, with the exception of number of sexual partners. among all risk factors studied, age, imprisonment and tattooing were statistically associated with seropositivity, even after multivariate analysis controlling for age and reclusión. the paper discusses the methodologic issues related to this epidemiologic investigation.
