Entecavir demonstrated superior virologic and biochemical benefits over lamivudine and adefovir. The investigators evaluated the effect of entecavir combined Hepatitis B immune globulin (HBIG) with lamivudine or adefovir or both combined HBIG in Chinese liver transplantation patients with Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) related diseases.

Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
The transference of a part of or an entire liver from one human or animal to another.
Conditions in which the LIVER functions fall below the normal ranges. Severe hepatic insufficiency may cause LIVER FAILURE or DEATH. Treatment may include LIVER TRANSPLANTATION.
Single or multiple areas of PUS due to bacterial infection within the hepatic parenchyma. It can be caused by a variety of BACTERIA, local or disseminated from infections elsewhere such as in APPENDICITIS; CHOLECYSTITIS; PERITONITIS; and after LIVER TRANSPLANTATION.
Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
