Abstract

The prevalence of antibodies to the hepatitis C virus (HCV) and hepatitis E virus (HEV) was measured in a group of 129 adults (mean +/- SD age : 44.7 +/- 13.5 years) from Bujumbura, Burundi, Central Africa. Sera were tested using a second generation ELISA and IIA for antibodies to HCV (antiHCV), and ELISA for antibodies to HEV (antiHEV). The prevalence of antiHCV was 27.1 %, very high, in agreement which data from other countries of Central Africa, hyperendemic area for HVC. The prevalence of antiHEV was 14 %, much lower than that of antiHAV (97.7 %). In addition to the lability of antibodies to HEL! this difference mightbe explained by the extensive availability of good-quality of drinking - water in the city The presence of seroiogical markers of HBV and HIV was not associated with that of antiHCV or that of antiHEV.
