Treatment of hepatitis B in HIV-Infected persons

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a potentially controllable infection, but it is rarely eliminated from the body. During HBV replication, a covalently closed circular DNA molecule is formed, which remains intracellular and serves as a persistent reservoir that can cause reactivation of HBV infection years after a patient discontinues therapy.
