HAV, HBV, and HCV are the more common types of viral hepatitis found in the US population [26]. These viruses can spread through food, water, infected blood, and bodily fluids. Viral hepatitis is an infection that causes liver inflammation and damage. Inflammation is swelling that occurs when tissues of the body become injured or infected. Inflammation can damage organs. Researchers have discovered several different viruses that cause hepatitis, including hepatitis A, B, C. Viral hepatitis is primarily diagnosed through blood tests for levels of viral antigens (such as the hepatitis B surface or core antigen), anti-viral antibodies (such as the anti-hepatitis B surface antibody or anti-hepatitis A antibody), or viral DNA/RNA. In early infection (i.e. within 1 Causes: Viruses, alcohol, toxins, autoimmune. As 5% of hepatitis B patients, % of hepatitis C patients and a significant number of hepatitis D and G patients are going on to a chronic hepatitis state, these patients become a large, worldwide reservoir for new hepatitis cases as their body secretions and blood transmit the hepatitis virus.
