Abstract— A mathematical model based on virology, immunology and pathogenesis of hepatitis B virus (HBV) was established to describe the viral and immune system dynamics during HBV infection. The noncytopathic effect of the cellular immune system was set to be proportional to the number of Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (CTLs). The condition of being complete recovery (HBV disappeared) was analyzed. Multiple simulations with different parameters were made to show the wide variety of clinical… CONTINUE READING
