Hepatitis B virus

The liver is involved in the metabolism of various substances such as sugars, proteins, fats, vitamins, and hormones, which helps maintain metabolic balance in the body. It also has a powerful detoxification function. Both endogenous and exogenous toxins need to be metabolized and detoxified in the liver, transformed into non-toxic or low toxic substances, and then excreted from the body to protect the body from harmful substances. In addition, the liver is also the site for the synthesis and secretion of bile. It not only participates in various functions such as metabolism, detoxification, synthesis, and secretion of bile, but also participates in important physiological processes such as immune regulation and blood coagulation. Therefore, daily maintenance and regular physical examinations of the liver are also very necessary.

What is hepatitis B virus?

Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) is a hepatophilic DNA virus that is the main pathogen causing hepatitis B and can cause acute or chronic liver inflammation. In severe cases, it can progress to cirrhosis and liver cancer. This disease is widely prevalent in countries around the world, mostly in children and young adults, and a few patients can later develop into cirrhosis or liver cancer. Therefore, it has become a global disease that seriously threatens human health. Currently, there are hundreds of millions of HBV (hepatitis B virus) infected individuals worldwide.

The complete hepatitis B virus particles (Dane particles) have a diameter of about 42 nanometers and a double-layer core-shell structure. The outer shell contains HBsAg (surface antigen), while the inner core particles contain HBcAg (core antigen) and HBeAg (e antigen), and contain the virus’s DNA and DNA polymerase.

Main symptoms of hepatitis B

Common transmission mode of hepatitis B

The above five indicators, that is, we often say two half tests for hepatitis B. The two half and half test of hepatitis B is an important indicator for the diagnosis of hepatitis B.

According to research, the average incubation period of hepatitis B virus is 90 days, but it may also range from 30 to 180 days. The onset process varies with each individual’s immune response. About 5% to 10% of adults infected with hepatitis B virus suffer from chronic hepatitis B or become carriers. More than 80% of children infected will become carriers. Therefore, strengthening the understanding of hepatitis B and doing a good job in screening hepatitis B is an important measure for us to stay away from hepatitis B.
