Prevalence and Presentation of Hepatitis B and C Virus (HBV and HCV) Infection in Vietnamese Americans via Serial Community Serologic Testing
Sun, 25 Jan 2015 07:03:20 +0100 | Journal of Immigrant and Minority Health
This study was based on the data collected by testing for Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), anti-hepatitis B core antibody (HBcAb IgG), anti-HBs antibody (HBsAb), and anti-HCV antibody (anti-HCV) in a series of community screening in VAs in Orange County, California. In 1,405 VA participants, the mean age was 51 (17–87) years, 45.1 % were males; 68.2 %, married; 97.2 %, born in Vietnam. Most of the participants were non-US born with their primary language being non-English and with limited access to health care. Of the 1,405 cases, 124 (8.8 %) were confirmed HBV infection by HBsAg+; 81 (5.8 %), HCV infection by anti-HCV+; including four (0.3 %) with HBV/HCV coinfection. Twelve percent of the participants with confirmed HBV infection thought they were previously tested negative, ...

Characterization of Chronic Hepatitis B Cases Among Foreign-Born Persons in Six Population-Based Surveillance Sites, United States 2001–2010
Sun, 25 Jan 2015 07:03:15 +0100 | Journal of Immigrant and Minority Health
We examined trends by birth country during 2005–2010. Of 36,008 cases, 21,355 (59.3 %) reported birth in a country outside the USA, 2,323 (6.5 %) were US-born. Compared with US-born, foreign-born persons were 9.2 times more frequent among chronic hepatitis B cases. Foreign-born were more frequently female, younger, ever pregnant, and born in China. Percentages of cases among foreign-born persons were constant during 2005–2010. Our findings support information from US surveillance for Hepatitis B screening and vaccination efforts.

Study of the putative fusion regions of the preS domain of hepatitis B virus
Sun, 25 Jan 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) Biomembranes
Publication date: April 2015 Source:Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Biomembranes, Volume 1848, Issue 4 Author(s): Carmen L. Delgado , Elena Núñez , Belén Yélamos , Julián Gómez-Gutiérrez , Darrell L. Peterson , Francisco Gavilanes In a previous study, it was shown that purified preS domains of hepatitis B virus (HBV) could interact with acidic phospholipid vesicles and induce aggregation, lipid mixing and leakage of internal contents which could be indicative of their involvement in the fusion of the viral and cellular membranes (Núñez, E. et al. 2009. Interaction of preS domains of hepatitis B virus with phospholipid vesicles. Biochim. Biophys. Acta 17884:417–424). In order to locate the region responsible for the fusogenic properties of preS, five mutant proteins have ...

Hepatitis B Immune Globulin Prophylaxis of Viral Reactivation during Stem Cell Transplant
Sat, 24 Jan 2015 02:48:32 +0100 | Biology of Blood and Marrow Transplantation
Stem cell transplant patients who are hepatitis B negative at the time of transplant and receive stem cells from a hepatitis positive donor have a higher risk of liver related post-transplant complications and hepatitis viral positivity. The use of lamivudine has been documented in the literature as chemoprophylaxis for preventing viral reactivation in positive patients and also surface antigen negative patients receiving stem cell product from hepatitis positive donors. The expected duration of chemoprophylaxis with lamivudine therapy is multiple months following stem cell transplant. (Source: Biology of Blood and Marrow Transplantation)

Precore / Core promoter variants to predict significant fibrosis in both HBeAg positive and negative chronic hepatitis B
Sat, 24 Jan 2015 01:57:32 +0100 | Liver International
ConclusionsWe identified strong independent risk factors (age, ALT, HBV‐DNA, HBV variants) predicting significant fibrosis (F≥2) independently of HBeAg status in patients with CHB. Patients with BCP variants have a higher risk of severe liver disease. The detection of these mutants may help to predict significant fibrosis (F≥2).This article is protected by copyright.

Causes of death in people with chronic HBV infection: a population-based cohort study
Sat, 24 Jan 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Hepatology
Mortality related to hepatitis B virus (HBV) is not well known in developed countries. The aim of this study was to investigate in a population-based cohort the excess risk of death in HBV-patients compared with mortality in the general population and to identify risk factors related to all-cause mortality and HBV-related mortality.
