Viral Hepatitis
Third Edition
edited by Howard C. Thomas

Viral Hepatitis represents the first comprehensive reference book on viral hepatitis.

Viral Hepatitis has been completely revised and updated to address the recent advances in diagnosis and treatment.

Chapters include:

  • Biology of liver stem cells and liver regeneration
  • Basic hepatic immunology and molecular virology of hepatitis A, B, C, D and E
  • Host immune response
  • Hepatitis E as a zoonosis and the latest results of the hepatitis E vaccine trail

Viral Hepatitis offers an ideal reference for all healthcare professionals involved in the research and patient care of this disease.
