Among the many mutations found in the hepatitis B virus (HBV) genome, some have been associated with fulminant hepatitis, as exemplified by precore-defective mutations. The aim of this study was to determine whether such mutations also are found in Vietnamese cases of fulminant hepatitis B. The full-genome nucleotide sequence of HBV in three patients with fulminant hepatitis (F-2, F-3, and F-6) and one with acute hepatitis (A-3), who were admitted to Cho Ray Hospital, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam… CONTINUE READING
