Hepatitis B is a disease caused by a virus that infects the liver. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is transmitted through contact with infected blood or bodily fluids. Unlike hepatitis A, this is a chronic ailment because the virus hides from the immune system and stays around for a very long period. So, what can you do to treat this disease?
In this blog post, we will explore the different types of Hepatitis B treatment and management options available.
Interferon alfa is a type of antiviral therapy used to manage hepatitis B. It helps to reduce the activity of the virus and reduce symptoms in the body. Interferon alfa stimulates the body’s immune system to fight off the virus, stopping it from reproducing and spreading.
This therapy is typically given as an injection that is administered daily or weekly. It can be used in combination with other treatments, such as antiviral medications or vaccines, to provide a more comprehensive approach to managing the infection.
