Infection with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a public health concern because it can lead to liver conditions like cirrhosis and hepatocellular cancer.

The basic immunology idea of an antigen attaching to its particular antibody is used in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, which enable the detection of extremely minute amounts of antigens like proteins, peptides, hormones, or antibodies in a fluid sample.

By using ELISA screening, 80 samples were positive for the HBV surface antigen (HBsAg). The study sample consisted of 59 males and 21 females, aged between 12 and 75. Results were 33 samples (41.25%) were positive for HBV-DNA. 47 (58.75%) of the samples tested negative for HBV-DNA using PCR. According to the current study, there is no discernible difference between males and females or between rural and urban areas in the incidence of HBV.
