About this book

Introduction

Chronic viral hepatitis affect hundreds of millions of people worldwide, and each year millions more people become infected. In Chronic Viral Hepatitis, Second Edition, a panel of distinguished clinicians and clinical investigators build upon the first edition by comprehensively reviewing all the relevant new information regarding resistance, side effects, and therapies for chronic viral hepatitis. The text covers recent advances in the understanding of pathogenesis of viral hepatitis while discussing promising agents in development for its treatment. The authors devote special attention to reactivation of hepatitis B with chemotherapy and immunosuppression, herbal and non-traditional therapies, chronic viral hepatitis in the pediatric population, and immunology and immunotherapy of HCV and provide relative costs for all diagnostic and therapeutic options. Authoritative and up-to-date, Chronic Viral Hepatitis, Second Edition offers today's gastroenterologists, internists, hepatologists, and infectious disease specialists a practical guide to the recognition, diagnosis and treatment of chronic viral hepatitis from a multidisciplinary approach.
