Abstract

In the world there are more than 350 million of chronic carriers with hepatitis B virus (HBV), in Peru the prevalence of this virus is varied. There are hyperendemic areas in the Amazon Region and some valleys of the Eastern slope of the Andean such as Abancay and Huanta. The objective of this study was to determine preliminary the genotypes of the HBV present in serologic samples from Ancash, Ayacucho, Lima, Loreto and Ucayali areas. The analysis of partial S region HBV sequence was realized from twelve antigen e (HBeAg) positive serums. The result of this analysis indicates the presence of genotype F (subtype adw4) in all the analyzed samples.
