Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is caused by a virus that attacks the liver. The virus, which is called Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), can cause lifelong infection, cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver, liver cancer, liver failure, and death.

How is Hepatitis B spread?

Hepatitis B, or HBV is spread when blood from an infected person enters the body of a person who is not hepatitis B positive. HBV is spread through having sex with an infected person without using a condom, by sharing drugs, needles when shooting drugs, through needle sticks or sharps.

What are the symptoms of Hepatitis B?
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin or of the whites of your eyes)
  • Tiredness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Dark urine
  • Clay-colored bowel movements
  • Joint pain
What are the risk factors for Hepatitis B?
  • Having sex with someone with HBV
  • Having sex with more than one partner
  • IV drug use
  • In the same house with someone who has chronic (long term) HBV infection.
  • Have hemophilia
  • Travel to areas where a hepatitis B positive diagnosis is common
Is there treatment for Hepatitis B?

There are no medications available for recently acquired (acute) HBV infection. There is a Hepatitis B vaccine available for the prevention of the infection. If you are hepatitis b positive, there are antiviral Hepatitis B drugs available for the treatment of chronic HBV infection. This is why it is crucial for anyone who is Hepatitis B Positive / HBSAG positive to participate in our Hepatitis B plasma donation program. We need your Hepatitis B plasma donation to help in several Hepatitis B clinical Trials and hepatitis be studies. Call to schedule a donation today!
