According to death certificates, approximately 1800 persons die from hepatitis B annually in the United States (US); however, this figure may underestimate the true mortality from chronic hepatitis B (CHB).

Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) infection of humans was first reported in 1977, and now it is now estimated that 15-20 million people are infected worldwide. Infection with HDV can be an acute or chronic ...
Hepatitis E virus (HEV) has traditionally been associated with an acute, self-limiting hepatitis and is not known to have any chronic sequelae. HEV genotype 1 and 2, which are human pathogens, have be...
Hepatitis G virus (HGV) infection appears to be common in patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of HCV/HGV in patients with c...
The epidemiology of acute hepatitis A and E has been changing over the last 2 decades. The impact of concomitant chronic hepatitis B (CHB) on clinical outcomes remains unclear. We aimed to evaluate th...
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The objective of this study was to predict the impact of EBR/GZR on th...
This is a prospective study to determine the incidence, morbidity, mortality and predisposing factors for the reactivation of hepatitis B virus replication during direct anti-HCV treatment...
The goals of therapy against chronic hepatitis B are to decrease the morbidity and mortality related to chronic HBV infection. Currently available antiviral therapy can suppress viral repl...
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection remains one of the most serious health problems worldwide. Patients with chronic HBV infection are at an increased risk for developing hepatic cirrhosis, ...
China is a highly prevalent area of hepatitis B virus（HBV） infection, with at least 75 million hepatitis B virus carriers, and 80% of primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is associat...
During 1983-1990 in the Jiangsu province of China, 80,000 infants were randomised by area of birth between control, standard Hepatitis B vaccination (at 0, 1 and 6 months of age) and stand...
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans that is caused by HEPATITIS C VIRUS lasting six months or more. Chronic hepatitis C can lead to LIVER CIRRHOSIS.
A defective virus, containing particles of RNA nucleoprotein in virion-like form, present in patients with acute hepatitis B and chronic hepatitis. It requires the presence of a hepadnavirus for full replication. This is the lone species in the genus Deltavirus.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER with ongoing hepatocellular injury for 6 months or more, characterized by NECROSIS of HEPATOCYTES and inflammatory cell (LEUKOCYTES) infiltration. Chronic hepatitis can be caused by viruses, medications, autoimmune diseases, and other unknown factors.
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.
Oral HCV-PROTEASE INHIBITOR effective against hepatitis C virus (HCV) serine protease NS3/4A. It is used in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C (Antivirals) genotype 1 infection in adults with compensated liver disease, including CIRRHOSIS.
