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 ...
This trial is being done to see if the investigational drug, LdT (Telbivudine), is safe and effective in the treatment of hepatitis B infection. In addition to this, we will be looking at ...
This study is being conducted to compare the safety and effectiveness of switching treatment from lamivudine to telbivudine (LdT) against continued lamivudine treatment. Results from pati...
The aim of this randomized clinical study is to show non-inferiority of a change of anti-viral therapy from telbivudine to lamivudine in patients who have achieved an undetectable viral lo...
This research study is being conducted to compare the safety and effectiveness of the investigational medication, LdT (Telbivudine) versus Lamivudine, a drug currently approved by the US, ...
In lamivudine-refractory chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients, discontinuation of lamivudine therapy may lead to loss of lamivudine-resistant hepatitis B virus (HBV) and reappearance of wide-type HBV as...
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...
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...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a major complication of chronic hepatitis B (CHB) and chronic hepatitis C (CHC). Accumulating data suggest that antiviral treatment in both CHB and CHC reduces the in...
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 ...
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.
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 in conjunction with HEPATITIS B VIRUS and lasting six months or more.
A closely related group of antigens found in the plasma only during the infective phase of hepatitis B or in virulent chronic hepatitis B, probably indicating active virus replication; there are three subtypes which may exist in a complex with immunoglobulins G.
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.
