Mucosal Membrane
Jun 23, 2003

How can Hep B be transmitted from one mucosal membrane to another? Thanx :)

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted disease and the essence of sexual intercourse is placing penile mucosal membranes into contact with vaginal or anal mucosal membranes. The way to prevent transmission is to place some latex in between to keep the mucosa from touching! Be safe! DTD
