Abstract

We considered the serum binding activity for human albumin polymerized with glutaraldehyde in 346 serum samples of 205 subjects with acute and chronic type A, B and non-A, non-B virus hepatitis. We showed that the binding activity for pHSA in the control groups did not have a titer higher than 2(-6). All sera from patients with HAV and HBV acute infection showed a high binding titer that returned to below the threshold in the former after the peak of hepatocytolysis, and in the latter after the seroconversion of HBsAg to anti-HBs. In the subjects who became HBsAg chronic carriers after the acute episode of HBV infection, the pHSA binding activity showed a decrement of the titer in relation to the seroconversion of HBeAg to anti-HBe. Furthermore, 92% of HBsAg chronic carriers who were HBeAg positive had a high titer of pHSA binding, while only 14.3% of the anti-HBe positives showed a high titer. Acute and chronic hepatitis non-A, non-B virus showed a pHSA binding titer similar to that of the control group. The results indicate that the non-A, non-B virus does not seem to be correlated to pHSA or related factors.
