Hepatitis  virus infection is a major  health problem around theworld and 30% of the world's population display serological indication of current or past infection of hepatitis. Hepatitis B virus is a somewhat double-stranded DNA virus through several serological indicators like  HBsAg and anti-HBs, HBeAg and anti-HBe, and anti-HBc IgM and IgG. HBsAg and anti-HBs, HBeAg and anti-HBe, and anti-HBc IgM and IgG. Hepatitis is an inflammation disease that occour  in our  liver. It may be produced by drugs, alcohol, or convinced medical conditions. But in maximum cases, it's caused by a virus. This is documented as viral hepatitis, and the most general forms are hepatitis A, B, and C. Hepatitis signals to an inflammation of the liver cells that damage to the liver. There are varied types and causes, but the suggestions can be similar Antiviral actions for chronic hepatitis B consist of interferon (IFN) therapy and nucleoside equivalentslike (lamivudine, adefovir, and entecavir therapy. Handling strategies are categoricalconstructed on the patient age, viral load, presence/absence of HBeAg, and development of ï¬brosis.
