HEPATOCELLULAR CARCINOMA AND HEPATITIS B VIRUS A Prospective Study of 22 707 Men in Taiwan
TLDR
It is shown that the incidence of primary hepatocellular carcinoma among carriers of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) is much higher than among non-carriers, supporting the hypothesis that hepatitis B virus has a primary role in the aetiology of PHC. Expand
Risk factors for hepatocellular carcinoma: Synergism of alcohol with viral hepatitis and diabetes mellitus
TLDR
A significant synergy between heavy alcohol consumption, hepatitis virus infection, and diabetes mellitus may suggest a common pathway for hepatocarcinogenesis in high‐risk individuals. Expand
Risk factors for perinatal transmission of hepatitis C virus (HCV) and the natural history of HCV infection acquired in infancy.
TLDR
If duration of membrane rupture and internal fetal monitoring are confirmed to be associated with transmission, interventions may be possible to decrease the risk of transmission. Expand
The Role of Hepatitis C in Hepatocellular Carcinoma: A Case Control Study Among Egyptian Patients
TLDR
Both HCV and hepatitis B virus infection increase the risk of HCC in Egyptian patients, whereas isolated Schistosoma infection does not. Expand
PREVENTION OF PERINATALLY TRANSMITTED HEPATITIS B VIRUS INFECTIONS WITH HEPATITIS B IMMUNE GLOBULIN AND HEPATITIS B VACCINE
TLDR
With HBIG coverage from birth, the timing of the start of vaccination does not seem to be of importance within the first month of life, but to maximise compliance and minimise costs hepatitis B vaccination should be initiated during the confinement. Expand
Incidence of hepatitis B virus infections in preschool children in Taiwan.
TLDR
The incidence of HBV infections was significantly associated with the frequency of previous injections, and HBsAg persistence was age-related, with most carriers being among the youngest children infected. Expand
Efficacy of Hepatitis B Immune Globulin for Prevention of Perinatal Transmission of the Hepatitis B Virus Carrier State: Final Report of a Randomized Double‐Blind, Placebo‐Controlled Trial
TLDR
A randomized double‐blind, placebo‐controlled efficacy trial of hepatitis B immune globulin (HBIG) for prevention of the mother‐to‐infant transmitted HBsAg carrier state was conducted in Taiwan and it is expected that higher efficacy can be achieved by hepatitis B vaccine in conjunction with HBIG. Expand
Prevalence of sexually transmitted infections and associated risk factors among populations of drug abusers.
TLDR
High prevalences of STDs among drug abusers indicate the need for integration of STD screening and treatment into drug treatment programs. Expand
Sexual risk behaviours and STIs in drug abuse treatment populations whose drug of choice is crack cocaine
TLDR
Analysis of sex differences comparing those for whom crack was the preferred versus non-preferred drug indicated that female crack users were significantly more likely to engage in oral sex, which supports previous ethnographic data suggesting that oral sex is a common mode of sex for drugs exchange in crack houses. Expand
Sexual Behaviour, STDs and Drug use in a Crack House Population
TLDR
High rates of STDs found in a crack house population as inferred from previous clinic-based and community studies should lead to considering STDs and substance abuse to be dual diagnoses in crack users and the integration of STD diagnosis and treatment into crack outreach and treatment programmes.
