Background: Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection is a major health problem and may lead to chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC). Detecting hepatitis B virus variants and antigenic variation of the HBsAg in relation to different geographic areas and process of treatment is fundamental for laboratory assay design, vaccine formulation, and prediction of progression of disease to chronic hepatitis and HCC. Methods: HBV markers were assessed using serum from apparently healthy subjects. HBV markers included hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis B surface antibody, and hepatitis B core antibody (HBcAb). Results: Samples from 200 volunteer subjects were tested.17 out of 200 (8.5%) showed evidence of HBV infection. Prevalence of various markers was also assessed among the population of study. Outcome of the Aminotransferase assays conducted showed high level of Transaminase. Conclusion: HBV seroprevalence is high amongst study population. Routine screening for HBV is needed while an urgent public enlightenment is highly encouraged, alongside a regular vaccination schedule. Keywords: HBV,Markers,Apparently Healthy Subjects.
