is a chronic hepatitis curable??? how about "inactive chronic" hepa?? How long it will take?


Response from Dr. McGovern

"Chronic" hepatitis refers to chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Hepatitis A does not cause chronic disease.

Chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C can both be treated successfully. The length of treatment depends on many individual factors which are discussed with each patient.

Dr. McGovern

What is the definition of inactive carrier?
Slower progression?
