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.
Companies operating in this pipeline space include Cadila Healthcare and Chongqing Zhifei Biological Products.
