Herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2) are common, lifelong infections, which often have no symptoms (1). People with symptoms may have painful blisters or sores at the site of infection (2,3). The viruses are transmitted through contact with an infected person’s lesion, mucosal surface, or genital or oral secretions. This report provides recent national estimates of HSV-1 and HSV-2 antibody prevalence from the 2015–2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) amo...

Abstract. Toxoplasma gondii can cause severe neurologic and ocular disease when transmitted congenitally and in immunosuppressed persons. Sera collected in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2011 through 2014 in 13,507 persons ≥ 6 years old were tested for T. gondii immunoglobulin (Ig) G and IgM antibodies, and in those both IgG and IgM antibody positive, for IgG avidity. Overall, 11.14% (95% confidence limits [CL] 9.88%, 12.51%) were seropositive for T. gondii IgG antibody (ag...

Hepatitis A (HAV), B (HBV), and C (HCV) viruses are common types of viral hepatitis. HBV and HCV infection can lead to liver disease, cancer, and serious health consequences. HAV and HBV infections are high among Asian persons, especially those born outside the United States (1-3). This report provides 2011- 2014 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) estimates on prevalence of antibody to HAV (from infection or immunization), past or current HBV infection, and current HCV inf...

This report presents estimates of HIV prevalence, the association of HIV status with key risk factors, and the prevalence of antiretroviral drug use among HIV-infected adults, based on the 2007–2012 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).HIV prevalence was estimated based on 10,466 NHANES respondents aged 18–59 during 2007–2012. Starting in 2009, the NHANES age range for HIV antibody testing was expanded from age group 18–49 to age group 18–59. HIV prevalence for 2007–2012 was...

Prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody has been reported in Mexican Americans, but its prevalence in other US Hispanic/Latino groups is unknown. We studied 2 populations of US Hispanic/Latino adults; 3210 from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2007–2010 and 11 964 from the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL). Age-standardized prevalence of HCV antibody was similar in NHANES 2007–2010 (1.5%) and HCHS/SOL (2.0%) but differed significantly...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a treatable but underrecognized and underdiagnosed disease. An estimated 130 to 170 million persons, 2% to 3% of the world’s population, are living with HCV infection, and almost 500 000 persons die of HCV-related conditions each year (primarily decompensated cirrhosis and liver cancer) (1). In the United States, previous estimates have consistently indicated that approximately 3 million or more persons have chronic HCV infection. An analysis of 21 241 serum ...

Background Herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2) are common infections with serious sequelae. HSV-1 is an increasingly important cause of genital herpes in industrialised countries, potentially due to less acquisition of HSV-1 during childhood or to changes in sexual behaviour. Methods Using nationally representative data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES), we examined change in seroprevalence of HSV-1 and HSV-2 among 14–49 year olds in the United ...
