Hepatitis B.
The disease known as hepatitis B is caused by the infectious Hepatitis B virus (HBV). HBV alone is estimated to have infected 400 million people throughout the globe, making HBV one of the most common human pathogens. Hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC), one of the most common cancers afflicting humans, is primarily caused by chronic HBV infection.. In the last few decades, the correlation between HBV and the development of HCC has been well established. However, the mechanism by which HBV transforms hepatocytes remains elusive. Before HBV can transform a cell, the virus must first infect it. However, the mechanism through which HBV enters hepatocytes has not been resolved despite further understanding of the viral proteins involved. Vaccines are available against HBV, but they may not be 100% effective against all variants of HBV. Furthermore, there is no cure for individuals already infected. Much more research is needed before we fully understand and control the spread of this infectious agent.

The following pages attempt to provide accurate and comprehensible information regarding the various aspects of the hepatitis B virus. Granted, some parts of this site require some scientific background to fully comprehend (i.e. the structural and molecular biology pages), but I have also included a question and answer page for those who feel some information needs clarification. May you find the information you are looking for within.
