“…12 There are many similar studies with the study of Mohammadali et al, that cannot find a significant correlation between HBV infection and blood groups. [13][14][15][16][17] In these studies, usually HBV infection was more commonly detected in patients in blood group O. 13,14,16 Only in the study of Siransy et al, HBV infection were more frequently observed in blood group A and in blood group B in the study of Behal et al 15,17 In these five studies, the results of Rh blood group were different ( Table 2).…”

“…With the increasing infection of HBV, it heavily threatens people's health. Epidemiological data reveal that there are about 360 million carriers of hepatitis B virus throughout the globe and 78% of the world populations' hail from Asia (Behal et al 2008).
