Abstract

Viral hepatitis B and Viral hepatitis C are one of the leading causes of disease and death in the present-day world. These viruses greatly affect the liver by causing inflammation, cirrhosis, fibrosis, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and even causes the death of affected individuals. It requires highly cautious treatment to resolve complications associated with it, including abnormal levels of serological molecules of specific antigens, antibodies and liver enzymes. The treatment involves the use of antiviral agents that fight against viral antigens, reverses the progression of the disease and also prevents morbidity. Further reading takes towards the development of safe and effective antiviral agents and other regimens for lessening complications and ensuring patient compliance. Moreover, vaccines are also available that fight against the virus and act to prevent the emergence of viral hepatitis. Future developments are today in clinical trials to produce safer and efficacious agents to combat and prevent this disease.
