Understanding Hepatitis BStreaming Video - 2007
More harmful and resilient than its alphabetic precursor, Hepatitis B is usually transmitted sexually or through other close bodily contact. This program explains what distinguishes HBV from other hepatitis strains, how it can infect the human body and still go undetected for decades, and how it can be prevented with vaccines. Physicians specializing in hepatitis research and care-including Dr. Robert Perrillo of the Ochsner Clinic Foundation, Dr. Anna Lock of the University of Michigan Medical Center, and Dr. Frank Mahoney, chief of the CDC's Hepatitis Prevention Unit-outline both successful and tragic case studies and guide viewers through the public health benefits of HBV education and immunization programs.
