Study Details

Study Description

Brief Summary

This study is the second cross-sectional study conducted in the region. In the first cross sectional study, conducted in the winter of 2020, we aimed to estimate the seroprevalence of SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibodies among blood donors in Sarajevo Canton. We also assessed immune durability among seropositive participants after 6 months. In total, of 1015 blood donors aged 18-65 years in Sarajevo Canton between 2 November and 3 December 2020 were recruited and population-weighted seroprevalence in Sarajevo Canton was 19.2% (95% CI: 16.7-21.6%). The aim of this second cross-sectional study is to measure the seroprevalence SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and assess antibody kinetics in the blood donor population after 12 months.

    Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Seroprevalence of SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibodies [November 2021-December 2021]

      Crude seroprevalence among blood donors will be adjusted to age and sex distribution in cantonal population and to test sensitivity and specificity using Bayesian statistical modeling.

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    1. Assess factors associated with seropositivity. [November 2021-December 2021]

      Chi-squared test will be conducted on categorical variables.

    2. Assess antibody response across types of immunity. [November 2021-December 2021]

      Among those with positive anti-S antibodies, geometric mean titers will be compared across participants with natural immunity, vaccine-induced immunity, and hybrid of natural and vaccine-induced immunity.
