Elevated HBV DNA increased risk for advanced fibrosis

Patients with chronic hepatitis B virus infection may have a lower risk for advanced fibrosis if they have low levels of HBV DNA, according to study data.

Researchers conducted a cohort study of 754 patients with chronic hepatitis B virus infection (HBV) who lived in Alaska. Results showed participants who had measurements of HBV DNA greater than 20,000 IU/mL had moderate or severe hepatitis or fibrosis.
