Wednesday, May 19, marks National Hepatitis Testing Day (#HepTestingDay) 2021. As HepMag.com explains:Hepatitis A virus (HAV), hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infect liver cells called hepatocytes, which provide the best conditions for these viruses to reproduce. And you can read about hepatitis C and HIV coinfection in POZ magazine here. HepMag’s Introduction to Hepatitis notes:As with so many diseases, we’ve come a long way in understanding viral hepatitis, notably two chronic and serious forms: hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Several drugs are now on the market to manage hepatitis B, and a growing number of agents are available to cure hepatitis C in more than 90 percent of people who are treated. Medicine is also making progress in managing and treating other forms of hepatitis and liver disease such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), alcoholic liver disease, autoimmune hepatitis, and primary biliary cholangitis (PBC).
