Hepatitis Virus

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. This disease can be self-limiting or/and can cause fibrosis (scarring), cirrhosis or liver cancer. Hepatitis viruses are the most common reason of hepatitis in the world but other infections, toxic substances, such as alcohol, certain drugs, and autoimmune diseases can also result in hepatitis. There are 5 main hepatitis viruses, containing types A, B, C, D and E. These five types are of greatest concern due to the burden of illness and death they cause and the potential for outbreaks and epidemic spread. Some of these hepatitis virus, types B and C infect more than 300 million people and are the most common reason of liver cirrhosis and cancer.
