Treatment of Hepatitis B and C

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

The author describes the course of infection with hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV), and gives the new definition of chronic HBV and HCV infections and histolog­ic classification of chronic hepatitis. The diag­nosis of these two infections is based on serologic findings obtained by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and on the identification of genotype in hepatitis C. The new treatment reg­imen in patients with acute and chronic HBV and HCV infections is presented, both from the the­oretical point of view and on the basis of the results of numerous studies of the effective­ness of monotherapy with interferon-alpha, and of a combination drug therapy. The author describes side-effects of this medication, and presents treatment of chronic hepatitis C by a combined use of interferon-alpha and ribavirin.
