Summary

The HCVAb positive rate in normal population in Beijing was 2.1% and HBsAg positive rate was 2.5%. There is an increasing tendency in the aged group. Plasmapheresis might have been the major cause of HCV transmission in blood donors in the Hebei area. There was a high prevalence of HCVAb and HBsAg in chronic liver diseases in the Beijing area and the HCVAb-positive rate significantly increased corresponding to disease progression.
