Authors: Liu Y, Shi C, Fan J, Wang B, Li G Abstract Introduction: Multiple studies have revealed a strong relationship between the development of nephropathy and hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. The underlying pathogenesis of hepatitis B-related glomerulonephritis (HBV-GN) involves immune complexes, which can be isolated from kidney tissues. Clearance of HBV antigenemia improves renal impairment and proteinuria in HBV-GN patients.Areas covered: In this review, we present our current understanding of the epidemiology, pathogenesis, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of HBV-GN. We discuss the advantages and disadv...

Abstract Ultramarine blue particles as a novel visible label has been used to develop immunochromatographic assay (ICA). The ultramarine blue particles, as a sodalite mineral with formula: (Na,Ca)8[(S,Cl,SO4,OH)2(Al6Si6O24)], can generate a blue visible signal were used as a label for ICA. Ultramarine blue particles were applied to a sandwich immunoassay to detect hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBsAg). Ultramarine blue particles were separated from ultramarine blue industrial product by centrifugation. The polyacrylic acid (PAA) was used to modify the carboxyl group on the surface of ultramarine blue particles...

More than 2 billion people are infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV) worldwide. The prevalence of chronic HBV infection is high (6.2%) in the Western Pacific and African regions [1]. Many researchers are aware of the risk of HBV reactivation in previously infected patients during immunosuppressive therapies such as chemotherapy, rituximab therapy and glucocorticoids [2,3]. The prevalence of hepatitis B core antibody (HBcAb) ranges from 5% in Western countries to>50% in Far Eastern countries [4 –6].

ConclusionsReceiving the birth dose is positively associated with up-to-date status later in childhood, highlighting the importance of starting vaccination early. The association is insensitive to confounding by factors observed in National Immunization Survey-Child, but investigation of unobserved factors such as vaccine hesitancy could provide critical information to guide intervention strategy.

Authors: Suoh M, Tamori A, Amano-Teranishi Y, Nakai T, Enomoto M, Kawasaki Y, Kioka K, Kawada N Abstract The appropriate management of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection during pregnancy has not been established in Japan. We herein report five HBV-infected pregnant Japanese women who received tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF). Two of them had been born after the introduction of nationwide immunoprophylaxis and were vertically infected with HBV, highlighting the need to address mother-to-child transmission further. In both entecavir-experienced and nucleoside/nucleotide analog-naïve mothers, TDF suppressed HBV...
