Track 1: Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis B virus (HBV). HBV is transmitted through activities that involve percutaneous or mucosal contact with infectious blood or body fluids. HBV can survive outside the body at least 7 days and still be capable of causing infection. The best way to prevent hepatitis B is by getting the hepatitis B vaccine. The pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of hepatitis B are due to the interaction of the virus and the host immune system, which lead to liver injury and potentially cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Patients can have either an acute symptomatic disease or an asymptomatic disease.

Track 2: Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a devastating viral disease that generally progresses slowly, meaning patients often remain asymptomatic and unaware they are infected until very serious and often expensive complications emerge as a result of damage to the liver. It is estimated that about half of those infected are not aware that they carry the virus. The recent remarkable advances in treating hepatitis C built on incremental improvements achieved over the previous two decades to transform hepatitis C from a chronic, fatal disease, to an infection that with new and forthcoming treatments, can be potentially cured.

Track 3: Non-Viral Hepatitis

Non-viral hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver caused by toxins, drugs, or other harmful chemicals that destroy cells in the liver (Hepatocytes).  Acute hepatitis damages hepatocytes, make up 70-85% of the total mass of the liver. The disease is a growing problem due to the increasing number of dietary supplements with liver side effects. If hepatitis leads to liver failure, a liver transplant is the only treatment option that can improve survival.

Track 4: Hepatitis Vaccination

The best way to prevent hepatitis is by getting the hepatitis vaccines. Vaccination is safe and effective and it is recommended for all. Efforts to develop a hepatitis C vaccine started more than 20 years ago, when the hepatitis C virus was identified. The hepatitis C virus is more variable than are the viruses that cause hepatitis A and hepatitis B. Hepatitis C virus occurs in at least six genetically distinct forms with 50 subtypes. A global vaccine would have to protect against all these variants of the virus.

Track 5: Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Hepatocellular carcinoma accounts for most liver cancers. This type of liver cancer occurs more often in men than women and is usually seen in people age 50 or older. It is commonly associated with cirrhosis and hepatitis. The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma is highest in Asia and Africa, where the endemic high prevalence of hepatitis B and hepatitis C strongly predisposes to the development of chronic liver disease and subsequent development of hepatocellular carcinoma. Other risk factors can include a history of alcohol abuse.

Track 6: Liver Diseases Diagnosis

Screening for Liver diseases has been advocated with the intention of intervening to halt its progression. Abnormal liver tests are those that measure synthesis of proteins made by the liver (albumin, clotting factors) or the liver's capacity to metabolize drugs. The impact of diagnosis of hepatitis C virus on quality of life is worse in patients aware of their viral status compared with individuals unaware of their viral status.

Track 7: Liver Diseases

Liver is responsible for many critical functions within the body. It helps your body digest food, store energy, and remove poisons. If it becomes diseased or injured, the loss of those functions can cause significant damage to the body. There are over 100 different forms of liver disease that affect men, women and children. These diseases include cirrhosis, alcohol abuse, hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E, Epstein Barr virus (infectious mononucleosis), non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and iron overload (hemochromatosis). The main symptoms of liver imbalance include weakness and fatigue, weight loss, nausea, vomiting, and yellow discoloration of the skin (jaundice).

Track 8: Pregnancy and Liver Diseases

Several disorders contribute to liver disease in pregnancy such as acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFLP) and intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (IHCP), hyperemesis gravidarum and hemolysis and elevated liver enzymes and low platelets (HELLP) syndrome. Liver disease such as acute viral hepatitis can occur in pregnancy and pregnancy may occur in a patient with underlying chronic liver disease including patients with cirrhosis and portal hypertension, and patients who have undergone liver transplantation.

Track 9: Liver Transplantation and Surgery

Liver transplantation surgery technique to replace a diseased or injured liver with a healthy liver delivered from a healthy person. The liver is involved in various metabolic functioning including metabolism of drugs and toxins, removing degradation products of normal body metabolism (for example clearance of ammonia and bilirubin from the blood), and synthesis of many important proteins and enzymes (such as factors necessary for blood to clot). Doctors or surgeons suggest liver transplant surgery to the patients who suffer from severe Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) or Chronic liver failure. This surgery carries a risk of other complications including infection, liver inflammation, blood clots, liver rejection, memory and thinking problems.

Track 10: HCV/HIV Coinfection

Overall, about one-third of people with HIV also have hepatitis C. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) can be transmitted in some of the same ways as HIV and hepatitis B. HIV can worsen hepatitis C. HIV not only increase the risk of liver damage, but it can also speed up the onset of liver damage following infection. People who are coinfected with HIV and HCV should work closely with health care providers in order to monitor and treat both conditions.

Hepatitis is an inflammatory condition of the liver caused by the hepatitis virus. The most observed types of this disease are hepatitis A, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Globally, 350 million people are chronically infected with any one form of hepatitis and around 500,000 people die every year according to World Health Organization. Hepatitis A is a simpler form of which does not lead to chronic infections. Patients suffering from hepatitis A recover within two months as this form is less complicated and can be prevented with vaccination. Although hepatitis B can be prevented by vaccination, once infected, a person can develop lifelong chronic infection resulting into severe liver damage. More than 2 billion people of the global population are infected with hepatitis B. Hepatitis B patients are vulnerable to further complications related to the liver, such as: hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer), liver failure, and liver cirrhosis.

Hepatitis C is most dangerous of among all the types of hepatitis as 80% of the hepatitis C infected patients get chronically infected. Around 150 million people are infected with hepatitis C worldwide and 350,000 people die every year. It has a cure rate of less than 80%, which drops below 60% in some regions of the world. The low cure rate is supplemented in most regions by a lack of an effective vaccine against hepatitis C. The global hepatitis C market is thus growing in response. Recent estimates find that about 215,000 people in the UK are chronically infected with hepatitis C.

In the United States, 20 percent to 30 percent of people living with HIV are coinfected with HCV. Hepatitis C is common among people living with HIV. This means that about 225,000 to 330,000 people in the United States are living with both viruses. The majority of people living with hepatitis C do not know they have it. The most common route of transmission in the UK is using non-sterile needles and other equipment for injecting drugs. 90 percent of people who got HIV from injecting drugs are also infected with HCV. This is because both viruses can be spread easily through blood and blood products.
