Abstract: 

Introduction: Blood transfusion saves millions of lives every year although it can cause some severe diseases of which hepatitis B is a major one. This study was performed to assess the prevalence of HBsAg among voluntary blood donors in Khorramabad from 2008 to 2009.
Methods: The study population consisted of 26167 blood donors referring to the Blood Transfusion Organization of Khorramabad, Iran, from 2008 to 2009. Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)was performed for the primary diagnosis of HBsAg and the positive cases were confirmed by Neutralization and Western Blot. The studied variables included gender, age, marital status, education, occupation, and place of living. The chi-square test was used to check the significance of relationship using the SPSS software.
Results: 80 individuals were HBsAg positive and the prevalence of HBsAg was 0.3%. The seroprevalence was higher in the age group of 50-59, males, the donors residing in rural areas, workers, and those with educational levels higher than associate degrees.
However, no significant relationship was found between the two groups regarding marital status.
Conclusion: Considering the results, the prevalence of HBsAg in Khorramabad was lower compared with the results of the last decade. Moreover, the prevalence was lower in comparison with that in the general population and the studied donors in other provinces. Screening programs, education, and vaccination, particularly in high-risk groups, are essential to prevent new cases.
