Background: Hepatic disorders like Acute and Chronic Hepatitis, cirrhosis & Hepato - cellular Carcinoma cause multi organ failure leading to death. The most important and commonest cause of hepatic disorders is Hepatitis B virus. The study is conducted on 100 confirmed hepatic disorder patients from Gastro intestinal ward which includes 70 male and 30 female with mean age of 30 years, ELISA (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbant Assay) and PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) was done at Gandhi Medical College Secunderabad.
Prevalence of HBV (Hepatitis B Virus) is found to be 35% by ELISA amongst which 54.3% were positive for PCR indicating replicating stage. The HBV positivity was detected to be highest in Cirrhosis followed by hepatitis and HCC (Hepato Cellular Carcinoma).
Conclusion: Hence this study is conducted to help in early detection, prevention & treatment of hepatic diseases in community. There is a scarcity of information on prevalence of HBV and HCV infections particularly in developing countries like India, therefore present study was conducted for early detection.
