Song et al. found that administering nucleo(t)side analogue to HBV-infected mothers from the second trimester could further reduce the rate of mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) than from the third trimester as indicated by HBV DNA. In this study, MTCT was defined as the serum seropositivity of hepatitis B surface antigen and HBV DNA in newborns within 24 hours after delivery. However, neonatal infection should be evaluated at 1-2 months after the 3rd dose of hepatitis B vaccine, that is, at least 7 months after delivery. Thus, the improper definition of MTCT would affect the reliability of the conclusion in this study. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

To determine whether amniocentesis increases the risk of mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and evaluate risk factors for MTCT.
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccination starting at birth is approximately 95% effective in preventing mother-to-child transmission to infants born to HBV-infected mothers. A higher risk of transmission i...
Mother-to-child transmission of hepatitis B virus (HBV) is the main cause of new infections worldwide. We aimed at assessing the percentage of infants successfully immunized in two major hospitals in ...
The Regional Framework for Triple Elimination of Mother-to-Child Transmission (EMTCT) of HIV, Hepatitis B (HBV) and Syphilis in Asia and the Pacific 2018-30 was endorsed by the Regional Committee of W...
To improve the care and treatment of HIV-exposed children, early infant diagnosis (EID) using dried blood spot (DBS) sampling has been performed in Senegal since 2007, making molecular diagnosis acces...
Chronic infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a leading cause of death in adults in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Prior to the introduction of the hepatitis B vaccine, main modes of transm...
The purpose of this study is to describe over time the rate of mother to child transmission of HIV and its prevention (PMTCT), to identify risk factors for transmission and to evaluate the...
Pregnant women carry high HBV DNA loads before delivery, which is the most important factor leading to mother-to-child transmission of HBV. Nucleoside analogue antiviral treatment during l...
The effective control of nucleos(t)ide analogues for patients infected with hepatitis B has significantly curbed the horizontal transmission of hepatitis B. However, the vertical transmiss...
Mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of hepatitis B virus (HBV) remains the major mode of transmission in most high and intermediate HBV endemic areas, despite existing WHO immunoprophylaxi...
Interaction between the mother and the child.
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).
Acute INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans; caused by HEPATITIS E VIRUS, a non-enveloped single-stranded RNA virus. Similar to HEPATITIS A, its incubation period is 15-60 days and is enterically transmitted, usually by fecal-oral transmission.
A strain of HEPATITIS A VIRUS which causes hepatitis in humans. The virus replicates in hepatocytes and is presumed to reach the intestine via the bile duct. Transmission occurs by the fecal-oral route.
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).
