« on: October 19, 2018, 10:25:08 am »
People with hepatitis B virus (HBV) who achieve clearance of their hep B surface antigen (HBsAg) maintain a risk, albeit low, of developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC, the most common form of liver cancer) and therefore should be monitored periodically.

Publishing their findings in the Journal of Viral Hepatology, researchers conducted a systematic review of 28 studies that included more than 105,411 people with chronic HBV. A total of 7,656 of them spontaneously cleared the virus while another 1,248 achieved viral clearance after treatment with interferon or a nucleoside/nucleotide analogue medication. Overall, 6.77 percent of the cohort achieved HBsAg clearance.
