Hepatitis B infection (HBV) occurs worldwide, with the highest rates in Asian and African countries, and there are several reports that HAV infection may have a more severe clinical course in patients with chronic HBV infection. We previously demonstrated that Japanese miso extracts have inhibitory effects on HAV replication. In the present study,...

Acute liver disease or failure in children is the result of viral hepatitis (A, B, E, seronegative), indeterminate hepatitis or inherited metabolic liver disease. The clinical presentation includes jaundice, coagulopathy and encephalopathy. Uncomplicated acute hepatitis resolves spontaneously, but progressive acute liver failure is fatal in 70% of cases and requires referral to specialized units to prevent complications and for consideration for liver transplantation. Chronic liver disease can result from unresolved neonatal liver disease caused by either inherited cholestasis or α1-antitrypsin deficiency.

BOSTON (CBS) – Packages of frozen raspberries and frozen berry mixes containing raspberries sold at Aldi Grocery Stores are being recalled because they could be contaminated with Hepatitis A.

AbstractHepatitis A, an acute inflammatory liver disease caused by hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection from close contact with infected people, is highly endemic in the Indian subcontinent. Due to poor sanitary conditions, most of the population is exposed to the virus in childhood. At this age, the disease is asymptomatic and provides life-long protection against the disease. Due to rapid socioeconomic development in some areas, however, pockets of the population are reaching adolescence/adulthood without prior exposure to the virus and are thus susceptible to infection. At these ages, infection carries a higher risk of sym...

​Subungual hematomas can be a terror. They are painful, ugly-looking, nefarious, and sometimes confusing. The ultimate goal is to drain the accumulated blood and relieve the painful pressure.The best intervention is easy and straightforward: Leave the nail in place, and evacuate the blood under it.

Abstract Since 2017, hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection has been an epidemic among men who have sex with men (MSM) in Japan. We experienced 11 MSM patients with hepatitis A who were also infected with HIV. In 1999-2000, we also experienced 5 HIV-infected patients with hepatitis A. Since conditions of current HIV-infected patients have changed owing to recent progress in anti-HIV therapies, we compared clinical features of hepatitis A between patients in 2017-2018 and those in 1999-2000. By comparing patients' background characteristics, we found the CD4/CD8 ratio was significantly higher in the 2017-2018 group. Aft...
