Recommended Conferences for Hepatitis B Virus

Hepatitis B Virus


As per available reports about 14 Relevant Journals, 03 Conferences are presently dedicated exclusively to Hepatitis B virus and about 954 articles are being published on Hepatitis B virus

Hepatitis B is an infectious disease caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) which affects the liver. It can cause both acute and chronic infections. The virus is transmitted by exposure to infectious blood or body fluids. Infection around the time of birth or from contact with other people's blood during childhood is the most frequent method by which hepatitis B is acquired in areas where the disease is common. In areas where the disease is rare, intravenous drug use and sexual intercourse are the most frequent routes of infection. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a member of the hepadnavirus family. Hepatitis B virus primarily interferes with the functions of the liver by replicating in hepatocytes. Vaccines for the prevention of hepatitis B have been routinely recommended.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.          

Scope and Importance:

Treatment of Hepatitis is on the cutting edge of medicine. Hepatitis B virus infection (HBV) has been recognized as a major health problem worldwide and Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is the most common chronic blood borne infection in the United States. Viral hepatitis treatment depends on how active the virus is in your body. Viral hepatitis is the most common cause of hepatitis worldwide. Other causes of non-viral hepatitis include alcoholic hepatitis and autoimmune hepatitis.

Hepatitis B virus is a species of the genus ortho hepadna virus, which belongs to Hepadnaviridae family of viruses. This virus causes hepatitis B disease. The infection with Hepatitis B Virus causes to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The hepatitis B virus contains an inner core and outer envelope. There is an outer shell composed of protein that is termed "surface antigen" or "HBsAg”. The surface antigen is generally produced in vast amounts, and the hepatitis B blood tests can detect this portion of the virus in the blood of infected individuals.

Market Analysis:

More than 2 000 million people alive today have been infected with HBV at some time in their lives. Of these, about 350 million remain infected chronically and become carriers of the virus. Three quarters of the world’s population live in areas where there are high levels of infection. Every year there are over 4 million acute clinical cases of HBV, and about 25% of carriers, 1 million people a year, die from chronic active hepatitis, cirrhosis or primary liver cancer. High endemicity areas include sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, the central Asian Republics, and some countries in eastern Europe. In these areas, about 70 to 90% of the population becomes HBV-infected before the age of 40, and 8 to 20% of people are HBV carriers. In countries such as China, Senegal, and Thailand, infection rates are very high in infants, and continue through early childhood. At that stage the prevalence of HBsAg in serum may exceed 25%. HBV is well studied in Saudi Arabia where the prevalence in the general population is 4.25%. The genotype of the virus D predominates in the Middle East. The highest prevalence (17.5%) of HCV in the world was reported in Egypt. The pooled prevalence of HCV in haemodialysis patients is 16% in Iran, 56% in Saudi Arabia, 52% in Syria, and 34% in Sudan.
