Disease relevance of Hepatitis Viruses


Psychiatry related information on Hepatitis Viruses


High impact information on Hepatitis Viruses

  • Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common cancers in Asia and Africa, where hepatitis virus infection and exposure to specific liver carcinogens are prevalent [8].
  • Rearrangement and enhanced expression of c-myc in hepatocellular carcinoma of hepatitis virus infected woodchucks [2].
  • SEN and sensibility: interactions between newly discovered and other hepatitis viruses [9]?
  • Patients whose livers showed small or large hypoechoic nodular pattern had a significantly higher risk of HCC than did patients whose livers showed a nonnodular pattern (rate ratios were 14.0 and 20.0, respectively, adjusted for age, sex, hepatitis virus markers, ICG R15, alpha-fetoprotein concentration, and ultrasonographic pattern of the liver) [10].
  • METHODS: We conducted screening for hepatitis virus markers and parenteral exposures to blood among 435 inhabitants in an isolated area known for its endemicity for non-A, non-B hepatitis and in a nonendemic area with 1542 inhabitants [11].

Chemical compound and disease context of Hepatitis Viruses

  • Since muscle carnitine levels were normal before treatment, we conclude that infection with hepatitis virus may induce non-carnitine-deficient lipid storage myopathy in man [12].
  • Prednisone may have suppressed normal immunologic responses to the hepatitis virus, resulting in persistence of the serum sickness-like state [13].
  • RESULTS: All cases were male and consumed 90-150 g/day of ethanol for longer than 20 years, and hepatitis virus markers were negative [14].
  • Treatment of chronic ground squirrel hepatitis virus infection with arabinosyladenine monophosphate at 20 mg/kg per day for 3 weeks caused marked decreases in serum virion-associated DNA polymerase concentrations in three of five squirrels [15].
  • Entecavir, a new guanine nucleoside, has also been shown to reduce covalently closed circular DNA (cccDNA) to undetectable levels in woodchucks chronically infected with hepatitis virus [16].
