General characteristics of the patients, Viral markers measured by ELISA method and their distribution by gender, Viral markers measured by ELISA method and their distribution by nationality and Leading search reasons in serology examinations were evaluated.
This study has data that can reflect the society in terms of the place where it was conducted and the number of patients included in the study.
