The results of a study of markers of infection/immunity by hepatitis B virus in a community of the health area in "Cristobal Labra" polyclinics, City of Habana in 1995. The studied healthy adult population was not included in any vaccination strategy with hepatitis B vaccine. Two markers were studied: Hepatitis B surface antigen and its corresponding antibody (anti-HBs). HBsAg-positivity was 1.05 % and anti-HBs positivity was 13.39 %. Of anti-HBs-positive cases, 13.39 % had titers from 10-50 UI/L and the rest (43.68 %) had titers over 50 UI/L.
