what is hepatitis a-1 stage 3
Sep 9, 2007

My brother recently informed our family that he has Hepatitis A-1, stage 3. What is he telling us? Is it terminal or curable? I have been serching for answers but have not really had the one main question I have will he or can he die from this disease? Please help ease the questions by responding to this question. Or please direct me to where I might find the answers we are seeking. Thank you.

Wife immune, can I have kids without infection
What does this result mean?
