Can Hep B be cured?
Jun 29, 2002

I am confused about Hep B and C, can thier virus be wiped out of the body? and can a person with hep B get married?

Response from Dr. Fried

Chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C both can be "cured" with appropriate antviral therapy. Discuss with your healthcare professional what treatment options are available and whether they are appropriate for you.

Someone with chronic HBV certainly can get married and lead a normal life. Their spouse/sexual partners/household contacts should get the HBV vaccine which will protect them from infection with HBV.
