The investigators hypothesize that a well-designed hepatitis C (HCV)video education curriculum for high-risk drug users will show measurable benefits in improving HCV testing, hepatitis A and B vaccinations, and HCV knowledge, attitudes, and motivations toward transmission behavior change. The investigators will use a 4-part modular video series designed for at-risk drug users, and in this 12 week study will assess its impact on testing/vaccinations as well as knowledge, attitudes, and motivations in methadone-maintained drug users as compared to a usual-care intervention.
Injection drug users are at high risk for contracting hepatitis C (HCV). Very few culturally-specific educational tools have been developed to improve outcomes in this population. We hypothesize that measurable improvements in HCV testing, hepatitis A and B vaccinations, and testable knowledge, attitudes, and motivations may be elicited by such a curriculum.
In this study, we will investigate the impact of a 4-module short video educational series on these measures in in-treatment drug users maintained on methadone. Subjects will be enrolled in 3 sequential cohorts of 150 each: usual care, a 4 weekly sequential video cohort, and a single-session intervention in which the 4 videos are viewed at once. Subjects will undergo written testing for knowledge, attitudes about transmission behaviors, and motivations toward behavior change before the intervention, 4 weeks after the intervention, and 12 weeks after the intervention. Additionally, we will measure and compare the rates of HCV testing and HAV/HBV vaccinations before and at the 12-week time point in all cohorts.

Serum hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) levels are associated with fibrosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) infection.
Quantitative hepatitis B surface antigen combined with hepatitis B e antigen as sustained virological response predictors during extended therapy with Peginterferon alfa-2a for hepatitis B e antigen-positive chronic hepatitis B.
The best strategy for chronic hepatitis B patients with poor response to 48 weeks of Peginterferon-based therapy has been controversial and the predictive value of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg),...

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans due to infection by VIRUSES. There are several significant types of human viral hepatitis with infection caused by enteric-transmission (HEPATITIS A; HEPATITIS E) or blood transfusion (HEPATITIS B; HEPATITIS C; and HEPATITIS D).
A family of hepatotropic DNA viruses which contains double-stranded DNA genomes and causes hepatitis in humans and animals. There are two genera: AVIHEPADNAVIRUS and ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS. Hepadnaviruses include HEPATITIS B VIRUS, duck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, DUCK), heron hepatitis B virus, ground squirrel hepatitis virus, and woodchuck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, WOODCHUCK).
Used with articles which include video files or clips, or for articles which are entirely video.
A species in the genus HEPATOVIRUS containing one serotype and two strains: HUMAN HEPATITIS A VIRUS and Simian hepatitis A virus causing hepatitis in humans (HEPATITIS A) and primates, respectively.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS DELTA VIRUS, a defective RNA virus that can only infect HEPATITIS B patients. For its viral coating, hepatitis delta virus requires the HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGENS produced by these patients. Hepatitis D can occur either concomitantly with (coinfection) or subsequent to (superinfection) hepatitis B infection. Similar to hepatitis B, it is primarily transmitted by parenteral exposure, such as transfusion of contaminated blood or blood products, but can also be transmitted via sexual or intimate personal contact.
