  1. Liver function of hepatitis B carriers in childhood.

    Article - En anglais

    This study followed 314 children who were carriers of hepatitis B virus for 2 to 4 years and compared them with noncarriers, matched for age and sex, from the same community.

    No confirmed carrier lost hepatitis B surface antigen.

    Hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) was lost at a rate of 10.6% per year; the rate of decay was not affected by age or gender.

    Liver enzymes were higher in HBeAg-positive than in HBeAg-negative carriers and loss of HBeAg was usually followed by return to values in the normal range.
