Disease Overview
Hepatitis B is a viral infection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) that attacks the liver and can cause both acute and chronic disease. HBV is transmitted perinatally from mother to child and through contact with infected blood or other bodily fluids. Despite a safe and effective vaccine being available, HBV continues to represent a major health problem and can lead to acute liver failure, acute hepatitis, chronic hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, liver cancer, liver transplantation, and death.
