|hep B or C???
Jan 15, 2010
Happy new year first of all, I'd like to ask you in your experience which virus is most likely to self limitate between Hep B and C. I ask because eventhough both are really bad; most people are more scared by hep C due to the fast evolution to liver cancer. I also ask because i got some elevated liver enzymes and had a panel done to check if it's viral hep. And my last question is: Have you seen seroconversions to hep B or C after 7 weeks with neg HBsAg and core antibodies for B and neg. ant for hep C? God bless you, and have a wonderful year,

Happy New Year to you as well!
