Abstract: Introduction The arbovirus proposes an important problem of public health in Brazil, especially in the Amazon, due to its capacity to cause outbreaks with high levels of morbidity-mortality in humans as well as in animals. Objective This paper had the objective to estimate the prevalence of antibodies to arbovirus in communities that live under the influence of the artificial lake of UHE Tucuruí in the State of Pará, Brazil. Method The analytical transversal study has selected 657 blood serum samples of individuals over 18, both genders, residents at the Sustainable Development Reserves (SDR) in the region of the lake of UHE Tucuruí. The epidemiological information has been registered in an instrument especially designed for such a study and the blood samples were collected in two periods of high and low tide of the lake. The blood serum tests were performed by the method of hemagglutination inhibition (HI). Results The results revealed a prevalence of positive antibodies to arbovirus of 85.0%, being 84.1% related to Flavivirus (vaccine strain of YFV), 25.5% related to Alphavirus and 34.6% to Bunyavirus. The results of serum prevalence to arbovirus between the periods of high tide and low tide have revealed significance amongst the Alphavirus, not observed in the other families. Conclusion In general, the data from this paper have suggested that the anthropoid actions on the environment of the lake have become determinant factors for the prevalence of arboviral antibodies.
