Abstract:

Out of 100 sera from patients with different infectious and noninfectious diseases 5 contained HAA 3 from patients with viral hepatitis, 1 from a patient with pancreatitis, 1 from a patient with gallbladder operation. Eighty out of 150 continuously tested patients 53.3 contained HAA in their sera at different times after the onset of the disease. Twenty-three out of 150 patients with viral hepatitis had a possible serum hepatitis. In 38 cases 47.5 of the positive patients HAA was demonstrable during the first 2-4 weeks after the onset of hepatitis, later on, during an investigational period of maximally 14 months it could no more be demonstrated. The sera of 10 children from a school epidemic were HAA negative. In 44 patients with HAA positive hepatitis antibodies to HAA could not be demonstrated. Modified author abstract
