Chronic Viral Hepatitis
Chronic viral hepatitis is the principal cause of chronic liver disease, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma in the world. IFNa is the only treatment with proven benefit for chronic viral hepatitis. Treating chronic hepatitis C of 5 years duration or less will provide a better long-term response. Long-term pretreatment with high doses of IFNa of chronic hepatitis C patients with initial transient positive response has been beneficial. Acute hepatitis C patients treated with IFNa have 36-61% chance of developing chronic hepatitis vs. 80-100% if no treatment is given. The combination of ribavirin and IFNa provides a higher rate of long-term response (44-77%) in chronic hepatitis C.

Chronic Hepatitis B.
"Chronic hepatitis B accounts for 5 to 10% of chronic liver disease and cirrhosis in U.S.A."
