  1. 1. Hepatitis B virus replication and integration

    Author : Simon B. Larsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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. Chronic hepatitis B in children

    Author : Ann Söderström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Chronic hepatitis B affects more than 350 million people. In areas of high and intermediate endemicity, hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is mainly contracted in the perinatal period or early childhood, and many of them become chronic carriers. READ MORE

  3. 3. Autoimmune hepatitis in Sweden

    Author : Mårten Werner; Åke Danielsson; Ole Suhr; Per Stål; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Autoimmune hepatitis; epidemiology; cirrhosis; prognosis; thiopurines; pregnancy; breast feeding; relapse; hepatocellular cancer; lymphoma; Gastroenterology; Gastroenterologi; medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) was identified as an entity by the Swedish professor Jan Waldenström in the 1950s. It was then denoted lupoid hepatitis, characterized by liver inflammation and most often affecting young women. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genetic variability of hepatitis B virus in chronic infection

    Author : Charles Hannoun; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ; hepatitis B virus; mutation; genotype; phylogeny; Recombination; coinfection; interferon; response;

    Abstract : Chronic hepatitis B is a major health problem, and may lead to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The liver damage in hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is considered to be a result of the immune response, and not a cytopathic effect of the virus itself. READ MORE

  5. 5. The hepatitis B virus – Insights into genetic variability, evolution and Bayesian phylogeographic inference

    Author : Mikael Ingman; Malmö Klinisk virologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hepatit B; evolutionsbiologi; fylogeni; Hepatitis B; evolutionary dynamics; Phylogeography;

    Abstract : In terms of genome size, the hepatitis B virus is the smallest virus known to infect humans and its compactness with multiple overlapping reading frames puts restraints on the emergence of mutations. In the papers included in this thesis we aimed to investigate genetic variation within the precore and core promoter region and to describe the origin, spread and diversification of HBV genotype A.
