Hepatitis B: a step towards healing




Patients were able to escape the serious complications of hepatitis B with the latest generation of antiviral treatments. These treatments block the disease and lead to an improvement of the liver, liver regeneration including " cirrhosis , the later stage of the disease," according to Professor Patrick Marcellin , hepatologist and Director of Inserm Unit . Proof is : " when treated for several years, three-quarters of patients with cirrhosis have their cirrhosis disappear ."

Yet for years , nobody thought a cirrhotic liver could go back. But reducing the amount of virus , new treatments allow this body to implement its legendary ability to regenerate. Gradually it erases the effect of hepatitis B on its cells. This recovery has been demonstrated on a large scale as part of a coordinated international study Beaujon hospital.

And if liver regeneration takes time, it avoids a heavy transplantation. Progress antivirals reduce each year the number of transplants for patients of hepatitis B.
