July 6, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 6, 2018--The “Hepatitis Drug Development Pipeline Review, 2018” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report provides an overview of the pipeline landscape for hepatitis infections. It provides comprehensive information on the therapeutics under development and key players involved in therapeutic development for hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis D and hepatitis E, and features dormant and discontinued products.

Hepatitis refers to inflammation of the liver and is most commonly caused by viral infections. Hepatitis A and E are typically caused by ingestion of contaminated food or water. Symptoms of hepatitis A infection include fatigue, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, dark urine, muscle pain and yellowing of the skin and eyes.

Risk factors include a weakened immune system and use of injected or non-injected illicit drugs. Symptoms of hepatitis E include yellowing of the skin, dark urine, fever, fatigue, joint pain, nausea, a loss of appetite and pain in the abdomen.

Hepatitis B and hepatitis D infection typically occur as a result of contact with infected body fluids. Transmission of hepatitis B can occur via sexual contact, injection drug use or transfusions of contaminated blood and blood products. Hepatitis B virus can cause an acute illness with symptoms that last several weeks, including yellowing of the skin and eyes, dark urine, extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Hepatitis D infection only occurs in persons previously infected with hepatitis B, as the hepatitis D virus can only replicate in the presence of hepatitis B. The co-infection of hepatitis B and hepatitis D is associated with greater disease severity than hepatitis B infection alone.
