Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is the tenth leading cause of death worldwide.
Mother-to-child transmission of HBV occurring mainly at delivery remains one of the most common routes of infection in developing countries.
One of the main challenges concerning HBV in Africa is to implement a prevention policy aiming at interrupting the cycle of pseudo-vertical transmission of this infection.
The aim of this study was to assess the implication of certain bacterial and viral factors in mother-to-child transmission of HBV.
This prospective study was conducted on 165 pregnant women carriers of HBV surface antigen (HBsAg) and their 169 newborns who attended care at the Gynecology Department of the University Hospital of Cocody.
