Hepatitis B & D


Infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) can resolve without treatment, but 257 million people around the world are affected by chronic hepatitis B virus. Chronic hepatitis B infection requires regular monitoring and increases risk of developing cirrhosis or liver cancer.

Hepatitis D virus (HDV) leads to the most severe form of viral hepatitis. You can only get HDV if you also have HBV, and HDV can lead to more severe liver disease than HBV infection alone. For the 20 million people infected with HDV worldwide, there is no approved therapy to treat HDV. We are working on phase II and III studies of investigational therapies for hepatitis B and hepatitis D infection.
