HBV exposure matures infants' immune systems
Wed, 25 Mar 2015 15:08:19 +0100 | ScienceDaily Headlines
Hepatitis B Virus Infection exposure increases the immune system maturation of infants, which may give a better survival advantage to counteract bacterial infection during early life, a new study concludes. These findings radically modify the way that HBV vertical infection of neonates (mother-to-child) is portrayed, and present a paradigm shift in the approach to treatment of patients with chronic hepatitis B.

Adaptation of the hepatitis B virus core protein to CD8+ T‐cell selection pressure
Wed, 25 Mar 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Hepatology
Conclusion: Viral sequence analysis allows identification of HLA class I–restricted epitopes under reproducible selection pressure in HBV core; the possibility of viral escape from CD8 T‐cell immune pressure needs attention in the context of therapeutic vaccination against HBV.

Occult infection with HBV intergenotypic A2/G recombinant following acute hepatitis B caused by an HBV/A2 isolate
Wed, 25 Mar 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Clinical Virology
Anti-hepatitis B core (anti-HBc) IgM antibodies and hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) are the main serological markers of the acute phase of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. The presence of hepatitis B ‘e’ antigen (HBeAg) and HBV DNA in serum indicates active viral replication. Resolution of infection is accompanied by the normalization of serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels and seroconversion to anti-HBs and anti-HBe. However, HBV may persist in liver and/or serum of patients after recovery from self-limited acute viral hepatitis [1–3]. (Source: Journal of Clinical Virology)

Acoustic radiation force impulse quantification of spleen elasticity for assessing liver fibrosis

A Bug Zapper for Blood: Intercept System Deactivates Pathogens in Donated Plasma
Tue, 24 Mar 2015 11:15:00 +0100 | Forbes.com Healthcare News
One of the biggest concerns about blood transfusions is what might lurk in the blood – viruses, bacteria, parasites or even potentially dangerous white blood cells. Intercept, a pathogen inactivation system approved by the FDA last December, allays much of that concern by essentially castrating almost anything in the blood that uses DNA or RNA to replicate (which, on planet Earth at least, is everything we need to worry about). A handful of viruses and bacterial spores can escape the system, but clinical trials and other studies have shown its effectiveness with HIV, hepatitis B and C viruses, West Nile virus, gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria and, importantly, tropical diseases such as dengue fever and chikungunya.

Kupffer Cells Interact With Hepatitis B Surface Antigen In Vivo and In Vitro, Leading to Proinflammatory Cytokine Production and Natural Killer Cell Function
Tue, 24 Mar 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | The Journal of Infectious Diseases
Conclusions. KCs directly interact with HBsAg in vivo and in vitro. HBsAg-induced cytokine production by KCs and monocyte-derived macrophages and subsequent NK cell activation may be an early event in viral containment and may support induction of HBV-specific immunity upon HBV infection, but may also contribute to liver pathology.
