Hepatitis B Virus exposure matures infants' immune systems

Hepatitis B Virus Infection (HBV) exposure increases the immune system maturation of infants, which may give a better survival advantage to counteract bacterial infection during early life. These findings radically modify the way that HBV vertical in...

Seals Harbor Hepatitis A-Like Virus

Scientists in the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health have discovered a new virus in seals that is the closest known relative of the human hepatitis A virus. The finding provides new clues on the emergence of hepatitis A. The research appears in the July/August issue of mBio, the online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbi...

Lives Could Be Saved with New Hepatitis C Therapy

In a letter to the Medical Journal of Australia, a Monash University-led team is asking for hepatitis C virus patients to gain improved access to drugs to prevent liver related deaths. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a major public health burden in Australia, with estimates of 230,000 people chronically infected.

CDC Observes 20th Anniversary of Hepatitis Awareness Month

This month marks the 20th anniversary of Hepatitis Awareness Month and the 4th National Hepatitis Testing Day (May 19) in the United States. Although care and treatment can be life-saving, many of the 3 million persons estimated to be living with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection are unaware of their infection and are not receiving preventive

Use of Antihistamine Compounds for the Treatment of Hepatitis C Virus

The vast majority of people infected with Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) will have chronic infection. Over decades, this can lead to liver disease and liver cancer. In fact, HCV infection is the leading cause of liver transplants in the U.S. Several new drugs have recently come into the market that will likely change the HCV treatment paradigm. However, the effectiveness of these new drugs c...

Alcohol use disorders - stronger predictor of mortality than chronic hepatitis C virus infection

(European Association for the Study of the Liver) Results presented today at The International Liver Congress™ 2015, show that alcohol use disorders (AUD) have a serious, negative prognostic outcome with higher mortality risks in the general popula...

Continued Progress Against Hepatitis C Infection

This Viewpoint describes clinical progress in eradicating hepatitis C virus infection, but emphasizes the importance of making treatment more cost-effective and accessible to all patients.

Expression of a Single Gene Lets Scientists Grow Hepatitis C Virus in the Lab

Worldwide, 185 million people have chronic hepatitis C. Since the late 1980s, when scientists discovered the virus that causes the infection, they have struggled to find ways to grow it in human cells in the lab -- an essential part of learning how the virus works and developing new effective treatments. In a study published in Nature on August

The Lancet Infectious Diseases Journal Publishes Results of Phase 2 Study of Lonafarnib in Hepatitis Delta Virus (HDV) Infected Patients

PALO ALTO, Calif., July 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Eiger BioPharmaceuticals Incorporated announced today the publication of results of the first Phase 2a study of lonafarnib in patients with chronic hepatitis delta virus (HDV) infection.  The study was conducted at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.  The double-blinded, randomized, placebo-contro...

Hepatitis: New mouse model provides novel insights into hepatitis D virus infection and clearance

AbbVie gets FDA approval for Hepatitis C combination therapy

Inhibiting virus cell entry by targeting tight junctions cures HCV infection in mice.

Study Details MicroRNA's Role as a Double Agent During Hepatitis C Infection

In the battle between a cell and a virus, either side may resort to subterfuge. Molecular messages, which control the cellular machinery both sides need, are vulnerable to interception or forgery. New research at Rockefeller University has revealed the unique twist on just such a strategy deployed by the liver-infecting hepatitis C virus –

NIH Study Suggests Alternative Drug to Treat Hepatitis C Virus Infection

An over-the-counter drug indicated to treat allergy symptoms limited hepatitis C virus activity in infected mice, according to a National Institutes of Health study. The results suggest that the drug, chlorcyclizine HCl (CCZ), potentially could be used to treat the virus in people. Results were published April 8 in Science Translational Medicine.

Hepatitis B Virus May Be Linked to Gastric Cancer

Study details microRNA's role as double agent during Hep C infection

Once inside a liver cell, the hepatitis C virus must bind to miRNA-122 in order to establish a persistent infection. Researchers have now found an unanticipated consequence of this interaction: By using miRNA-122 for its own ends, the virus appears t...

Scientists Identify Crucial Step in Helping to Prevent Hepatitis C Virus Replication

New research from the University of Southampton has identified how changes in the cell membrane play a pivotal role in how the hepatitis C virus replicates. By understanding this process, the researchers hope to investigate how to prevent the changes and potentially develop therapeutic drugs to combat the hepatitis C virus (HCV), which infects an

Differences in Liver Cancer Attributable to Hepatitis Virus Variations

Significant clinical variations exist among patients with the most common type of liver cancer called hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), depending on the viral cause of the disease -- hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV). These differences suggest that hepatitis status should be considered when developing treatment plans for newly
