“…Os demais estudos referem-se à prevalência da doença entre doações, variando no Brasil entre 0,1 e 0,3%, segundo os trabalhos mais recentes 11,12,13,14,15,16 . O relatório de produção hemoterápica brasileira, com dados de 2013, indica 0,34% de doações reagentes para a doença de Chagas na triagem entre os doadores, com os maiores percentuais (0,5%) no Nordeste e Sudeste 17 .…”

“…Compared to the rest of Brazil, the obtained anti-T. cruzi Ab seroprevalence in blood donors can be regarded as low. Brazilian blood donors from various regions demonstrate anti-T. cruzi Ab prevalences of 0.47% (southern Brazil) [12], 1.4% (Londrina city, Paraná State) [13], 1.7% (Rio de Janeiro city) [14], and 1.9% (Iguatu city, Ceará State) [15]. The significant difference of the anti-T. cruzi prevalence between blood donors in the different Brazilian regions is probably due to the different sensitivity and specificity of the tests used for the blood donor screening, the year studied, the demographic characteristics of the population, the sample volume, and/or presence of vector transmission.…”

“…Nevertheless, algorithms were developed and are considered to be appropriate to rule out the risk of Chagas disease transmission through blood products [8][9][10][11]. However, the main concerns of blood banks screening are to rule out disease in blood products and to deal with indeterminate and false-positive results after serological screening.…”
