  • Hepatitis B SIG: HBV Flares: Distinguishing the Good from the Bad

    Contains 10 Component(s) Recorded On: 11/11/2018

    AASLD'S Hepatitis B SIG: HBV Flares: Distinguishing the Good from the Bad presented at The Liver Meeting® 2018.

    Chronic HBV (CHB) infection follows a dynamic course with multiple phases of disease with various durations.  ALT flares during CHB can be challenging for clinicians to manage.  In some settings ALT flares herald a transition from active to inactive disease and thus are considered to be beneficial. In other scenarios, they may indicate aggressive inflammatory liver disease than can lead to progressive liver injury or even fulminant hepatic failure. Understanding and distinguishing these 'good' and 'bad' flares is not only a clinical challenge but a key to understanding the natural history and the therapeutic goals of HBV treatment. The program starts with a definition of flares and the current understanding of their immunological pathophysiology. Flares in different clinical settings will also be discussed (focusing on their beneficial and potentially harmful effects). Finally, attendees will hear about management strategies for ATL flares.
