Effect of lymphatic and splenic pump techniques on the antibody response to hepatitis B vaccine: a pilot study.
TLDR
Data suggest an enhanced immunologic response in subjects who received OMT, and the average anti-hepatitis B titer was higher in the treatment group than in the control group. Expand
Global prevalence of hepatitis C virus in children in 2018: a modelling study.
TLDR
This analysis combines past modelling and epidemiological work in 104 countries and territories to estimate global HCV prevalence in children in 2018 and provides global prevalence estimates of HCV in the paediatric population. Expand
Impact of COVID-19 on global HCV elimination efforts
TLDR
The impact of COVID-19 extends beyond the direct morbidity and mortality associated with exposure and infection to mitigate the impact on viral hepatitis programming and reduce excess mortality from delayed treatment, policy makers should prioritize hepatitis programs as soon as it becomes safe to do so. Expand
Cost analysis of different cervical cancer screening strategies in Mexico.
TLDR
Combining multiple tests may be a more cost-effective way to screen for cervical cancer in Mexico because it is the least expensive option with an acceptable number of missed cases. Expand
The case for simplifying and using absolute targets for viral hepatitis elimination goals
TLDR
WHO simplify the hepatitis elimination targets, change to absolute targets and allow countries to achieve these disease targets with their own service coverage initiatives that will have the maximum impact, to help measure progress towards true elimination and motivate other countries to follow suit. Expand
Impact of COVID-19 on global hepatitis C elimination efforts
This is a PDF file of an article that has undergone enhancements after acceptance, such as the addition of a cover page and metadata, and formatting for readability, but it is not yet the definitiveExpand
A tool to measure the impact of inaction toward elimination of hepatitis C: A case study in Korea
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Korea can prevent significant morbidity, mortality and spending on HCV, requiring an up-front investment in prevention that decreases spending on liver-related complications and death. Expand
Global prevalence of hepatitis C virus in women of childbearing age in 2019: a modelling study.
TLDR
Using modelling, this analysis provides global and national estimates of HCV prevalence in all women of childbearing age and can inform preconception test-and-treat strategies to reduce vertical transmission and total disease burden. Expand
A tool to measure the economic impact of Hepatitis B elimination: A case study in Saudi Arabia.
TLDR
Increased diagnosis and treatment rates of HBV would lead to substantial declines in HCC and LRD and be dramatically enhanced by administering treatment to all HBV cases regardless of viral load and estimated to be highly cost-effective if treatment prices can be substantially reduced. Expand
