Mar 11, 2001
I have been assigned a project about Hepatitus B for my Biology course. I cannot figure out the detailed disease's effects on the body and/or body systems. Do you know what they are?
Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres
Hepatitis B is a viral disease that affects primarily the liver.There are multiple extrahepatic manifestations that are mediated by the immune system.Go to liver disease in the web to get all the details.It is preventable by a vaccine.
