  1. 1. Hepatitis B virus replication and integration

    Author : Simon B. Larsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hepatitis B virus; replication; integration; HBV DNA; HBsAg;

    Abstract : Chronic infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) affects 240 million people worldwide and may cause liver disease including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Initially patients have high levels of HBV DNA in their blood, no liver disease and express the e antigen (HBeAg). READ MORE

  2. 2. Geographic and genetic diversity of hepatitis B

    Author : Erik Alestig; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hepatitis B virus; genotype; phylogeny; molecular epidemiology; sequence analysis; mutation;

    Abstract : Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection is a global health problem and may lead to chronic hepatitis, liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular cancer. The ability of HBV to adapt to the host environment by genetic variation has lead to the evolution of 8 established (A-H) and 2 putative genotypes (I-J), each corresponding to a rather well-defined geographical distribution.

  3. 3. Hepatitis E virus in the virome of water and animals

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Hao Wang; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pig; wild boar; wastewater; tap water; enteric virus; NGS;

    Abstract : This thesis was aimed to investigate viruses in different animals and water to get some understanding of viruses that disseminate into the environment. Next generation sequencing (NGS) was used to explore the virome from raw to treated water at two Swedish drinking water treatment plants (DWTP) and in tap water. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular characterization and prevalence of hepatitis E virus in Swedish wild animals

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Jay Lin; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Observation of chronic hepatitis E virus (HEV) in immunosuppressed patients, and unexplained high hepatitis E virus (HEV) prevalence in the human population raises public health concern. The aim of this thesis is to molecular characterize and investigate the prevalence of HEV in Swedish wild life and their association with HEV transmission to humans. READ MORE

  5. 5. Impact of Host Genetic Variants on Natural History and Treatment of Hepatitis C Virus Infection

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Karolina Rembeck; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hepatitis C; prognostic factors;

    Abstract : Chronic hepatitis C Virus (HCV) infection causes liver disease and may progress to severe fibrosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. This thesis aimed to evaluate the impact of host genetics, i.e. READ MORE
