Abstract

This transversal study was suggested in order to estimate the nationwide seroprevalences of HIV infection and hepatitis B among 495 pregnant women in Niger in 2008. The study detected anti-HIV antibodies with Genscreen(®) Plus HIV Ag/Ab Ultra Kit (Bio-Rad; Hercules, CA), Vironostika(®) HIV Uni-Form II Ag/Ab (bioMérieux; Marcy-l'Etoile, France), and ImmunoComb(®) II HIV 1 and 2 BiSpot (Orgenics; Yavne, Israel). HBsAg was detected by Monolisa(®) HBsAg Ultra (Bio-Rad) and ImmunoComb(®) II HBsAg (Orgenics). The rates obtained were 2.02% (95% confidence intervals (CI): 1.03%-3.81%) and 16.16% (95% CI: 13.09%-19.77%), respectively. There were no significant variations according to environment, region, age, marital status, educational level, antecedent of surgery and transfusion. But these data need a large sample, and periodic updates for a better planning of activities in the framework of a national reproductive health program, including prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 March 2012.
All research outputs
#7,007,788
of 11,281,639 outputs
Outputs from HIV/AIDS (Auckland, N.Z.)
#85
of 132 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#61,153
of 108,207 outputs
Outputs of similar age from HIV/AIDS (Auckland, N.Z.)
#9
of 14 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,281,639 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 132 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.7. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 108,207 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 14 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
