Take a look at how portable, long-read nanopore sequencing can be applied to the study of hepatitis B virus.
A peek behind the paper – Geoffrey Dusheiko on the current and future directions of management of hepatitis B
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Virology review as we ask author Geoffrey Dusheiko about the challenges facing hepatitis B and what the future may hold in terms of functional cure and new research directions.
Researchers have discovered sequence-specific interactions between hepatitis B proteins and pre-genome RNA that may play a crucial role in nucleocapsid assembly. This could be targeted in future drug development.
Author, Khaled Barakat, argues that computational modeling has a great potential in directing hepatitis research, to understand the liver and to discover better and more effective treatments.
In line with Hepatitis Awareness Month, we spoke to Marcus Dorner about his current research into the host–virus interactions in hepatitis B and C infection, their implications for vaccine development and more.
Researchers have demonstrated that both hepatitis B and hepatitis C infection are associated with an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease.
