Global epidemiology of hepatitis B virus
infection: New estimates of age-specific HBsAg sero-prevalence and endemicity.
HBeAg and hepatitis B virus
DNA as outcome predictors during therapy with peginterferon alfa-2a for HBeAg-positive chronic hepatitis B.
Vaccination of adults against hepatitis B virus

Spread of hepatitis B virus

Telbivudine is a single pill taken orally, once-a-day, with or without food to suppress replication of hepatitis B virus
These exams involve routine clinical examination, routine biochemical testing, and determination of hepatitis A virus (HAV) and hepatitis B virus
(HBV) serologic status.
(1,2) One form of VPH, hepatitis B virus
(HBV), can cause chronic conditions, such as cirrhosis and chronic hepatitis, and can lead to liver cancer and death.
For the most part, however, you need to concern yourself only with hepatitis A virus, hepatitis B virus
and hepatitis C virus-referred to as HAV, HBV and HCV respectively.
