Around the world hepatitis has infected more than 2 billion people (10 million in the US) and is, in its chronic form, the leading factor in end-stage liver disease and the rising incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma. In Chronic Viral Hepatitis: Diagnosis and Therapeutics, leading scientists, clinicians, and clinical investigators comprehensively review the epidemiology, molecular virology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of chronic hepatitis caused by the B and C viruses. The discussion of patient management includes contributions on developing novel therapeutics, supporting patients during therapy, alternative treatments, the use of drugs in chronic viral hepatitis, liver transplantation, and pregnancy in chronic viral hepatitis. Attention is also given to the treatment of patients with concomitant autoimmune disorders, the management of HIV co-infection, and the management of HBV/HCV co-infection. Each chapter provides an extensive review of available literature and is based on broad experience in clinical trials and the management of patients with chronic viral hepatitis.
Authoritative and eminently practical, Chronic Viral Hepatitis: Diagnosis and Therapeutics offers today's gastroenterologists, primary care physicians, hepatologists, and infectious disease specialists a critical understanding of the state-of-the-art in chronic viral hepatitis and insightful projections of the many powerful new therapeutics now emerging.
