09:31 EDT 3 Apr 2017 | Medical Xpress

Hepatitis B is notoriously difficult to eradicate with currently available agents.. Now, in a new study, a novel form of "pegylated" interferon-β has reduced hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections in experimental human-derived cells and in mice more effectively than the conventional pegylated interferon-α2a, suggesting that it could lead to improved treatment for hepatitis B infection in humans. The research is published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology.
