The Beneficial Effect of Vitamin D Supplement to Peg Interferon Alpha 2a or to Telbivudine Monotherapy in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) Infection

Abstract Telbivudine is a potent inhibitor of HBV but, due to a low genetic barrier to resistance, a high incidence of resistance has been observed in patients with high baseline levels o...

Peginterferon Alpha-2a Maintenance Therapy for Portal Hypertension in Patients With Hepatitis C

The primary purpose of this study is to determine if peginterferon alpha-2a maintenance therapy (90 mcg/week) will lower portal pressure in patients with hepatitis C virus infections and a...

An Extension to Viral Kinetics Study of Telbivudine and Entecavir in Adults With Chronic Hepatitis B

This study is to evaluate the safety of telbivudine for up to 21 months of open-label treatment in patients with chronic hepatitis B who have completed the CLDT600A2407 trial. Patients tre...

An Extension Study of Telbivudine, Lamivudine or Telbivudine Plus Lamivudine in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis B

This is an extension study for patients who have previously completed Idenix Study NV-02B-003. This study is being conducted to compare the safety and effectiveness of treatment beyond 1 ...

Telbivudine Versus the Combination of Telbivudine and Valtorcitabine in Patients With Chronic Hepatitis B

This study is being conducted to compare the effectiveness of the combination of valtorcitabine and telbivudine to telbivudine alone in patients with chronic hepatitis B.

Prediction of Sustained Virological Response to Peginterferon-based Therapy for Chronic Hepatitis C: Regression Analysis of a Cohort from Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

Peginterferon plus ribavirin (peg-IFN/RBV) is still the standard of care for treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in many countries. Given the high toxicity of this regimen, our study aimed to develop...

Telbivudine associated mitochondrial myopathy.

A 62-year-old male had a history of hepatitis B virus infection with fulminant hepatitis status post liver transplant in 2 years ago presented to Rheumatology clinic with one-year history of progressi...

Increase of Serum Kallikrein-8 Level After Long-term Telbivudine Treatment.

Our previous cDNA microarray study revealed increased cellular mRNA levels of a panel of genes, including kallikrein-8 (KLK8), after long-term telbivudine treatment in chronic hepatitis B patients. Th...

No association between IFNL3 (IL28B) genotype and response to peginterferon alfa-2a in HBeAg-positive or -negative chronic hepatitis B.

It has yet to be firmly established whether host IFNL3 (IL28B) genotype influences interferon responsiveness in patients with chronic hepatitis B. We investigated associations between single-nucleotid...

An easy-to-use baseline scoring system to predict response to peginterferon alfa-2a in patients with chronic hepatitis B in resource-limited settings.

Approximately one-third of patients have durable responses after finite (48-week) treatment with peginterferon alfa-2a. The ability to identify patients likely to respond would be particularly useful ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

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.

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS C VIRUS, a single-stranded RNA virus. Its incubation period is 30-90 days. Hepatitis C is transmitted primarily by contaminated blood parenterally, and is often associated with transfusion and intravenous drug abuse. However, in a significant number of cases, the source of hepatitis C infection is unknown.
