Hepatitis B Virus and drug resistance

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a common viral infection worldwide and can be transmitted sexually and parenterally. After an incubation period of 1–6 months, most patients present with an asymptomatic or mild inflammation of the liver, which usually resolves within a few weeks or months. Chronically infected persons may be either carriers without exhibiting any symptoms or have ongoing hepatic inflammation with an increased risk of liver cirrhosis or liver cancer.

hepatitis B virus (HBV) mutants frequently arise, leading to  resistance or treatment failure and progression to liver disease.

The hepatitis B virus is highly resistant. At room temperature it remains viable for 3 months, in the frozen state – for several years. The virus is completely inactivated by autoclaving (120 ° C), boiling for 30 minutes, dry heat at 180 ° C for 60 minutes, at 60 ° C for 10 hours. It is stable in an acidic medium, but is destroyed in alkaline.

Medicinal plants have shown to activily combat the HBV, don’t loose hope.
