Differences in the mechanism of the development of hbsag positive and hbsag negative forms of chronic active hepatitis

, : Differences in the mechanism of the development of hbsag positive and hbsag negative forms of chronic active hepatitis. Klinicheskaya Meditsina (Moscow) 64(11): 73-78

A comparative evaluation was carried out of the quantitative indices and functional activity of cellular and humoral immunity, as well as of the features of the histological and electron microscopic study of liver biopsy specimens of 30 hepatitis patients. T-suppressor cells predominated in the peripheral blood of patients with the HbsAg-positive form of hepatitis. Accumulations of aggressive lymphocytes were found in necrotic foci. Apparently these lymphocytes are T-killers. A pronounced decrease in the amount and functional activity of T-suppressors was observed in patients with the HBsAg-negative form of chronic active hepatitis [CAH]. In HBsAg-positive CAH, the damage to hepatocytes is determined by T-killers and macrophages, but in HBsAg-negative CAH, lymphocytes may be responsible for antibody-dependent cytotoxicity.

The correlation between serum and hepatic markers of hepatitis B virus (HBV) has been studied in 70 subjects with chronic active hepatitis of whom 18 were HBsAg+ and 52 were HBsAg-. In HBsAg+ subjects, sera were tested for HBeAg/anti-HBe status an...

Korea is one of the endemic areas of hepatitis B virus infection. In clinical practice, we have suspected that HBsAg+ patients with chronic liver disease (CLD) are younger than HBsAg- patient. In order to determine the prevalence of HBV infection...

The notion that acute hepatitis A superimposed on chronic hepatitis B infection leads to a worse outcome than acute hepatitis A alone remains controversial. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of the presence of hepatitis B surfac...
