Seroprevalence of occult hepatitis B among Egyptian paediatric hepatitis C cancer patients
Thu, 24 Apr 2014 04:45:34 +0100 | Journal of Viral Hepatitis
In this study, we aim at analysing the rates of occult HBV infections among HCV paediatric cancer patients in Egypt. The prevalence of occult HBV was assessed in two groups of paediatric cancer patients (HCV positive and HCV negative), in addition to a third group of paediatric noncancer patients, which was used as a general control. All groups were negative for HBsAg and positive for HCV antibody. HBV DNA was detected by nested PCR and real‐time PCR. HCV was detected by real‐time PCR. Sequencing was carried out in order to determine HBV genotypes to all HBV patients as well as to detect any mutation that might be responsible for the occult phenotype. Occult hepatitis B infection was observed in neither the non‐HCV paediatric cancer patients nor the paediatric noncancer patients but ...

Occult hepatitis B virus infection predicts de novo hepatitis B infection in patients with alcoholic cirrhosis after liver transplantation

Barriers to care and treatment for patients with chronic viral hepatitis in europe: a systematic review
Tue, 22 Apr 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Liver International
ConclusionsA substantial proportion of diagnosed chronic HBV and the majority of diagnosed HCV patients remain untreated. The rates and most importantly the reasons of barriers to treatment in chronic HBV/HCV patients vary widely among European countries supporting the need for country‐specific national strategies, resource allocation and implementation of global management policies.This article is protected by copyright.

Optimal linear combination of ARFI, transient elastography, and APRI for the assessment of fibrosis in chronic hepatitis B
Mon, 21 Apr 2014 23:05:40 +0100 | Liver International
ConclusionsThe optimal linear combination algorithm is effective for noninvasive staging of liver fibrosis in CHB. However, linear combination has its own limitations; nonlinear methods may eventually reveal even clearer diagnostic results.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

ConclusionsTravel and dialysis away from a patient's usual hemodialysis unit is a common occurrence but is associated with an increased risk of bacterial infection, anemia, and inflammatory response. This study provides evidence for the concern that hemodialysis away from center is associated with increased morbidity. (Source: Journal of Travel Medicine)

Changes of HBsAg and HBV DNA levels in Chinese chronic hepatitis B patients after 5 years of entecavir treatment
Mon, 21 Apr 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology
ConclusionIn contrast to the profound HBV DNA suppression, long‐term entecavir treatment achieved only a slow decline in serum HBsAg. Although certain patient subgroups exhibit a more rapid HBsAg reduction, additional therapeutic agents are needed to increase the chance of HBsAg seroclearance in CHB.
