Abstract: 
Background and Objectives: Recently there has been special interest in the donor selection strategies in blood banks in order to provide safer blood supply. Important steps are exclusion of paid and replacement donation and increase in the number of regular donors. In this survey the seroprevalence of blood-borne infections among regular, sporadic (lapsed) and first-time blood donors were compared (from March 2005 to February 2005).Materials and Methods: In a retrospective study the prevalence of transfusion transmitted infections was compared among regular, sporadic (lapsed) and first-time blood donors of Boushehr city. The total of 19627 blood donors donated blood during March 2005 to February 2005 in Boushehr; out of this number, 7282 were regular donors (37.1%), 728 sporadic donors (3.7%), 11617 first-time donors (59.18%) and 414(2.1%) donors were determined as self-exclusion. Data were collected from the computerized data source of Boushehr Blood Transfusion Center and were then compared by the Chi-square statistical test.Results: Out of 7282 regular donors, 6 (0.082%) HBsAg positive, 6 (0.08%) HCV-Ab reactive, and all were HIV-Ab negative. Whereas out of 728 sporadic donors one (0.13%) was HBsAg positive, and all were HCV-Ab and HIV-Ab negative. Out of 11617 first-times blood donors, 65 (0.55%) were HBsAg positive, 41 (0.35%) HCV-Ab reactive and 3 (0.02%) were HIV-Ab reactive. The prevalence of blood-borne infections (hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV and syphilis) was less in regular than sporadic and first-time blood donors. P value of HBsAg factor was p=0.000003 for regular and first-time donors, also P value of HCV-Ab factor was p=0.00049 for regular and first time donors that these difference were significant.Conclusions: Regular blood donation is one of the important steps in blood safety; hence, retention of regular donors, and awareness-raising and recruitment of sporadic and first-time donors can increase the rate of regular donation leading in turn to higher blood safety, so implementation of self-exclusion plan in order to improve blood safety is imperative.
