From a diagnostic perspective, the complexities of chronic HBV infection are challenging existing diagnostics with the need to stage chronic infection, identify occult cases, and detect mutations. There’s growing need in the monitoring of immunosuppressed patients with ultra-sensitive diagnostic tools that can identify HBV reactivation. Therapy monitoring for current and new antivirals utilizes both serological and molecular assays as well as exploring novel antigen and nucleic acid markers.

Join Patricia Slev as she discusses current testing algorithms used and updates the audience on the latest Hepatitis B virus guidelines.
