Prévalence de l’antigène HBs dans deux populations exposées : les usagers de drogues (ANRS-Coquelicot 2011-2013) et les hommes ayant des relations sexuelles avec des hommes (Prevagay 2009) à Paris, France

Abstract : The French Institute for Public Health Surveillance set up two communities based surveys which provide both Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg). The first one, the ANRS-Coquelicot survey, studied in 2011-2013 drug users (DUs) who attend specialized structures in health care and risk reduction. The second survey, Prevagay, concerned men who have sex with men (MSM) who attended Paris gay venues in 2009. Persons recruited for both surveys were invited to collect a fingerprick whole blood sample on filter paper, and to respond to a behavioral questionnaire. This questionnaire was anonymous and administered by interviewers for DUs, and self-completed for MSM. Blood samples were screened for the presence of HBs Ag using the Monolisa HBs Ag ULTRA (Biorad®) assay. Among the 647 DUs and the 876 MSM investigated in Paris and included in the analysis, 15 DUs and 12 MSM were diagnosed HBs Ag-positive, representing HBs Ag seroprevalence of 2.1% (IC95% [1.0-4.2]) and 1.4%, respectively. In these two specific populations, different in terms of socio-demographic profiles, and both at risk of HBV transmission, due to their drug use practices or their sexual behaviors, HBs Ag seroprevalence was close to the one observed in the general population.
