This is a recorded version of the AACC webinar, Current Issues in Hepatitis Testing, initially held December 21, 2011. This program addresses what's new in the management of hepatitis B virus (HBV), its subviruses, and hepatitis C virus (HCV). You will know: what current data indicate about the role new quantitative hepatitis b surface antigen assays may play in early detection and monitoring of HBV treatment; when HBV genotyping and HBV core/precore mutation tests should be ordered and how clinicians are using them; how to interpret hepatitis B e-antigen results for monitoring patient therapy; what role IL28-B plays in deciding treatment option for patients with HCV; and why new protease inhibitors may necessitate a change in cutoff levels for HCV RNA (PCR and genotyping) testing when monitoring treatment.
