BACKGROUND Immunomodulators and Nucleotide analogues have been used globally for the dealing of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. However, the development of drug resistance is a major limitation to their long-term effectiveness. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to characterize the hepatitis B virus reverse transcriptase (RT) protein(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis B virus (HBV) gene and protein variations are frequently been seen in chronic patients. The aims of study were to determine the genotypes as well as the patterns of variations distribution in chronically-infected patients from the central part of Iran. METHODS The surface gene was amplified, sequenced and subsequently aligned using(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Iranian chronic HBV carrier's population has shown a unique pattern of genotype D distribution all around the country. The aim of this study was to explore more details of evolutionary history of carriers based on structural surface proteins from different provinces. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sera obtained from 360 isolates from 12(More)
