Hepatitis B infection is caused by the Hepatitis B virus and is usually screened for by detecting HBsAg in the blood. Immunity may be discerned by detecting HBsAb, and if absent, the Hepatitis B vaccine or Twinrix® vaccine may be given.

  • The hepatitis B virus is 100 times more infectious than HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, and infects about 10 times more people than HIV worldwide.
  • Hepatitis B virus infects the liver, and more than 350 million people in the world are lifelong hepatitis B virus carriers.
  • Long-term hepatitis B virus infection causes at least one million premature deaths every year from cirrhosis of the liver or liver cancer. It is second only to tobacco as the leading cause of cancer in humans.
  • Among the Hepatitis B carriers, 25% will develop serious liver diseases, including chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  • The hepatitis B virus can be passed from an infected mother to her baby during childbirth, 1 in 20 Singaporeans are chronically infected with hepatitis B virus.
TORCH

TORCH complex is a medical acronym for a set of perinatal infections (i.e. infections that are passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus), that can lead to severe fetal anomalies or even fetal loss.

Primate research is crucial if we are to find cures for diseases like Parkinson's
Tue, 13 Sep 2016 22:45:42 +0800 | Guardian Unlimited Science
To effectively combat the scourge of neurodegenerative and other crippling diseases, we require the careful and considered use of nonhuman primatesNonhuman primates have long played a key role in life-changing medical advances. A recent white paper by nine scientific societies in the US produced a list of 50 medical advances from the last 50 years made possible through studies on nonhuman primates. These included: treatments for leprosy, HIV and Parkinson ’s; the MMR and hepatitis B vaccines; and earlier diagnosis and better treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome and breast cancer.The biological similarities between humans and other primates mean that they are sometimes the only effective model for complex neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson ’s.

Scientists find drugs for cancer, hepatitis C can kill Zika in petri dish. But will they work in humans?
Tue, 30 Aug 2016 07:33:54 +0800 | Washington Post: To Your Health
Scientists have discovered three existing drugs — used for cancer, hepatitis C and for parasitic infections — that they say appear promising against the Zika virus. The experiments were conducted only in lab-grown human cells in petri dishes, but the results were dramatic. Zika is so devastating that the damage it does has been thought to be irreversible.

Why Aren't More Parents Vaccinating Their Kids Against Cancer?
Fri, 26 Aug 2016 02:57:35 +0800 | Science - The Huffington Post
If there were a vaccine that could protect your 11-year-old son from getting cancer as an adult, you&rsquo;d make sure he got it, right? As it turns out, this immunization exists,&nbsp;but a majority of young boys are not adequately protected, as journalist Jane Brody noted in The New York Times on Tuesday. The human papillomavirus vaccine ― which protects against HPV-associated cancers&nbsp;including throat and tongue, cervical, vaginal, vulvar, anal, and penile cancers ― is strongly recommended as cancer prevention for 11- and 12-year-old boys and girls by the U.S. Centers of Disease Control and Prevention. The bad news: Just 22 percent of boys ages 13-17 had undergone the recommended three-dose HPV vaccine course for maximum cancer protection in 2014, and only 42 percent of boys had...

Hepatitis A Outbreak Linked To Popular Hawaii Sushi Chain
Mon, 22 Aug 2016 22:11:01 +0800 | Science - The Huffington Post
Hawaii is experiencing one of the largest hepatitis A outbreaks the United States has seen in the last decade,&nbsp;with 206 confirmed cases, including 51 that required hospitalization,&nbsp;since the outbreak started in June.&nbsp; State officials used an online population survey&nbsp;to find the source of the outbreak, announcing last week that&nbsp;frozen scallops served raw at Genki Sushi, a popular conveyor belt sushi chain, were likely the source. The FDA later confirmed that scallops infected with the hepatitis A virus were&nbsp;imported from the Philippines&nbsp;and served at the restaurants. The state has since embargoed the scallops,&nbsp;shut down 11 Genki Sushi locations across the islands of Oahu and Kauai, and asked the restaurants to get rid of all their food supplies and si...
