No such thing as a Healthy Hepatitis B Carrier

Just attending a talk on Hepatitis B. The message is that everybody with Hepatitis B even if he or she is a carrier can convert into an active phase and develop a hepatoma. The other message is that chronic Hep B affects 1 in 4 people on this earth. Lastly Hep B immunization in babies with mothers who have Hep B is essential within the first 12 hours. Hep B patients need to be monitored every 6 to 12 monthly. 6 monthly ultrasound and a yearly DNA viral load is needed.
