Chronic hepatitis B is a liver disease caused by a virus. Being a carrier of hepatitis B means that you are infected with the virus and can transmit it to others, but you may not have the disease. Infection has been reported in 10% to 20% of adults with chronic HBV or HCV infection, indicating that co-infection is a common occurrence.

The majority of perinatal transmission is thought to occur at delivery, given that a combination of hepatitis B immunoglobulin and vaccination given within 12 hours of birth has reduced the rate of perinatal transmission from >90% to Cited by: Practical Management of Chronic Viral Hepatitis.

This book on Hepatitis B and C contains very useful and recent information about the general characteristics of these common types of chronic liver infections. Referred to as Hepatitis B, there are three chapters describing the main epidemiological, clinical, therapeutic, and prognosis aspects.
The molecular variants for HBsAg, its genotyping, and their clinical implications are fully analyzed. First vaccine dose should be given at the same visit as testing. Susceptible persons should complete a 3-dose hepatitis B vaccine series to prevent infection from ongoing exposure.
Men who have sex with men. Test for HBsAg, as well as for anti-HBc or anti-HBs to identify susceptible persons. First vaccine dose should be given at the same visit. In chronic hepatitis B (Chapter ), prolonged administration of adefovir is effective in improving histologic abnormalities of the liver, decreasing hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA levels, and normalizing biochemical (alanine aminotransferase) markers in patients with hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg)–positive and Chronic hepatitis B book chronic hepatitis B (Tables to ).
Viral hepatitis has emerged as a major public health problem throughout the world affecting several hundreds of millions of people. Viral hepatitis is a cause of considerable morbidity and mortality in the human population, both from acute infection and chronic sequelae which include, in the case of hepatitis B, C and D, chronic active hepatitis and cirrhosis.
The main medicines for chronic hepatitis B include peginterferon alfa 2-a and antiviral medicines. Peginterferon alfa-2a. If your liver is working fairly well, the first treatment offered is usually a medicine called peginterferon alfa 2-a.

Chronic hepatitis B affects around: 90% of babies with hepatitis B. Hepatitis B is a serious disease caused by a virus that attacks the liver.

A vaccine is available to prevent this infection. Tests and treatment are also available. This book presents up-to-date, practically oriented information on major topics in chronic hepatitis B.
The coverage encompasses epidemiology; diagnosis, including molecular methods; treatment and. Chronic Hepatitis. Chronic hepatitis refers to a group of disorders characterized by inflammation of the liver persisting for more than 6 months, although some patients have an acute clinical presentation.
Numerous viral, genetic, autoimmune, metabolic, and drug-induced causes of chronic hepatitis have been identified (Table ). Hepatitis A. You usually get it when you eat or drink something that's got the virus in it.
It's the least risky type because it almost always gets better on its own. It doesn't lead to long-term. The scope of the book is very broad, covering a wide range of areas in HBV/HDV and HCV research, including both basic and clinical science.
The selected topics range from epidemiology, immunology, molecular virology and oncology, to clinical c Hepatitis B and C Author: Chiaho Shih. Hepatitis B is an infectious disease caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) that affects the liver.
It can cause both acute and chronic infection. Many people have no symptoms during the initial infection. In acute infection, some may develop a rapid onset of sickness with vomiting, yellowish skin, tiredness, dark urine and abdominal pain.
Often these symptoms last a few weeks and rarely does Complications: Cirrhosis, liver cancer. Chronic Viral Hepatitis is another valuable guide to the proper care of patients with chronic viral hepatitis. One may wonder whether this new book simply adds to the plethora of books on chronic viral hepatitis and may wonder what its shelf life will be in an era of electronic : Hardcover.

The vaccine is recommended for extended stay travelers, people with chronic conditions, older people, healthcare workers, and people who participate in high-risk activities (such as injection drug use and unprotected sex).
Chronic Hepatitis B Infection. The main goal of treatment for chronic hepatitis B virus infection is the inhibition of viral replication with secondary goals being reducing symptoms and prevent or delay the progression of chronic hepatitis to cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma.
Management of chronic hepatitis B in children is considered separately, and emerging drugs that hold promise for the treatment of chronic HBV infection are discussed.
Chronic Hepatitis B will be of high value for general practitioners and specialists in gastroenterology, infectious diseases, and internal medicine. The prevalence of chronic hepatitis B (CHB) in Australia is estimated to have increased by more than 50 people in the past decade, affecting approximately 1% of the population.
1 This rises to over 8% for patients born in high prevalence areas (Figure 1).Chronic hepatitis B is also more common in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples (estimated prevalence of around 4%), people who. Hepatitis Victoria in Melbourne, Australia recently released their “bright, colorful, positive and silly” children’s book, Little Hep B Hero.

Little Hep B Hero, which is available in English, Simplified Chinese and Vietnamese, gives children and their families a delightful glimpse into a young. The result is a comprehensive account on all aspects of viral hepatitis, including rapid advances in the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of a complex infection, which in the case of hepatitis B, C and D may lead to severe complications including chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection remains a global public health problem with changing epidemiology due to several factors including vaccination policies and migration. Therefore, the EASL Guidelines for Hepatitis B presents updated recommendations for the optimal management of HBV infection.
Chronic HBV infection is classified into five phases.Hepatitis B has also been called type B hepatitis, serum hepatitis, homologous serum jaundice, 31 What causes the disease?
Hepatitis B is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV), an enveloped virus containing a partially double stranded, circular DNA genome, and classified within the family hepadnavirus, 15, 23, 30, Most people with chronic hepatitis B infection are asymptomatic. A minority of people with chronic hepatitis B infection will develop chronic active hepatitis.
Cirrhosis develops in about 15–20% of people infected as healthy adults but may take as long as 20 years to manifest.
