Hepatitis B and C viruses: molecular identification and targeted antiviral therapies.

Abstract

Four agents are in clinical development for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B infection. These nucleoside analogs are incorporated into the growing DNA chain and terminate replication. Lamivudine, a cytadine analog that inhibits the synthesis of negative strand DNA from pre-genomic RNA, predictably inhibits replication and improves liver enzymes and… (More)
