We assessed prognostic factors in 115 patients with serologically defined fulminant hepatitis B. The diagnosis in each case was based on the finding of IgM antibody to the hepatitis B core antigen in serum. Multivariate analysis showed that factor V level (p < 0.001), patient's age (p = 0.001), absence of detectable HBsAg by radioimmunoassay (p = 0.06) and serum α‐fetoprotein concentration (p = 0.07) were independent predictors of survival. The survival rate in the 21 patients in whom HBsAg was… 
Fulminant hepatitis in a tropical population: Clinical course, cause, and early predictors of outcome
TLDR
Most of patients with FHF might have been caused by hepatotropic viral infection, and non‐A, non‐B virus(es) seems to be the dominant hepatotropic Viral Viral infection among these patients.
Pediatric fulminant hepatic failure in endemic areas of hepatitis B infection: 15 years after universal hepatitis B vaccination
TLDR
Within the first 15 years of universal vaccination, HBV was found to rarely cause FHF in children age > 1 year but remained a significant cause of F HF in infants.
Aetiology and prognosis of fulminant viral hepatitis in Japan: A multicentre study
In 236 patients with fulminant viral hepatitis (FVH), type B (FBH) was most common (47.5%), followed by non‐A non‐B hepatitis (FNANB, 44.9%) and hepatitis type A (FAH, 7.6%). The survival rate was
Diagnostic significance of IgM antibody to hepatitis delta virus in fulminant hepatitis B
TLDR
The results show that HDV infection has a significant role in type B fulminant hepatitis in an area with a moderate prevalence of HBV infections, that it should be tested in cases with early clearance of HBsAg, and that it does not seem to be accompanied by a high fatality rate.
Coagulation factor V levels as a prognostic indicator in fulminant hepatic failure
TLDR
The predictive accuracy of plasma factor V level is much less effective than the well‐validated King's criteria in the selection of patients with acetaminophen‐induced FHF needing liver grafting, although it may be useful in patients with FHF due to other causes.
Prognostic Evaluation of Early Indicators in Fulminant Hepatic Failure by Multivariate Analysis
TLDR
The factors adversely affecting theoutcome in patients with FHF complicating viral hepatitis include presence of overt clinical features of raised ICP at the time of hospitalization, prothrombin time on admission, age (>50yr), and onset of encephalopathy seven days after onset of jaundice.
Clinical and molecular virological differences between fulminant hepatic failures following acute and chronic infection with hepatitis B virus
TLDR
The results indicate that HBV mutants incapable of translating hepatitis B e antigen would play a major role in fulminant hepatic failure occurring after acute HBV infection, and HBV variants with core promoter mutations for reducing the transcription of hepatitis B E antigen will play an additional role in Fulminant Hepatic failure developing during chronic infection.
Accurate prediction of fulminant hepatic failure in severe acute viral hepatitis: multicenter study
TLDR
It is indicated that fulminant hepatic failure can be predicted, by a simple discrimination equation, at the stage of severe acute hepatitis.

TLDR
Hepatitis B virus infection, severe impairment of liver function tests, and confluent hepatocyte necrosis and infection characterize patients dying from acute viral hepatitis in Serbia.

Enhanced HBsAb production in pathogenesis of fulminant viral hepatitis type B.
TLDR
An enhanced production of HBs Ab in fulminant hepatitis, by leading to free HBsAb in portal blood, may cause an Arthus reaction in the sinusoids of the liver with ensuing ischaemic necrosis of hepatocytes.
Hepatitis B antigen (HBSAg) and/or antibodies (anti-HBS and anti-HBC) in fulminant hepatitis: pathogenic and prognostic significance.
TLDR
The results suggest that an unusually strong and rapid immune clearance of HBSAg may be involved in the pathogenesis of fulminant hepatitis.
Serodiagnosis of Recent Hepatitis B Infection by IgM Class Anti‐HBc
TLDR
A solid‐phase immunoassay developed using the IgM capture procedure with anti‐m̈ated polystyrene beads exhibited a pronounced prozoning phenomenon, and relative titers of sera differed widely depending upon the dilution of serum tested.
Hepatitis B virus markers, alpha‐fetoprotein and survival in fulminant viral hepatitis
The serological markers of hepatitis B virus and serum alpha‐fetoprotein (AFP) levels have been studied in 28 consecutive cases of fulminant hepatitis, correlating the data with survival.
Acute Type B Hepatitis among HBsAg Negative Patients Detected by Anti‐HBc IgM
TLDR
Evidence is provided that anti‐ HBc IgM in serum from patients with HBsAg negative hepatitis with or without anti‐HBs indicates an actual hepatitis B virus infection.
Liver biopsy and prognosis in acute liver failure
TLDR
On serial liver biopsy a significant increase in hepatocyte volume and clotting factors was only observed in patients who recovered consciousness, and the estimated liver cell mass after regeneration in patientsWho recovered consciousness was ≥45% and <45% in the patients who did not.
Relation of alpha-fetoprotein in acute hepatitis to severity and prognosis.
TLDR
Serums of 104 patients with acute hepatitis of variable severity were tested for alpha- Fetoprotein by counterelectrophoresis and among 51 patients with fulminant hepatitis and coma, alpha-fetoprotein was higher than expected.
