關於B型肝炎

B型肝炎是經由B肝病毒(HBV)傳染,B型肝炎病患可增加罹患肝硬化,肝衰竭以及肝癌的機率。全球有80%的肝癌患者得病都是因為本身罹患B型肝炎的緣故。

Most people who have chronic hepatitis B are completely unaware they have it. The first step is knowing.

B型肝炎傳染途徑

The hepatitis B virus (HBV) is transmitted through infected blood in the following ways:
 

  • From a mother to a child at the time of birth (most common for APIs)

  • Contact with infected blood

  • Unprotected sex

Among the Asian & Pacific Islander (API) community, transmission of HBV frequently occurs during the birth process when the virus is passed on to the baby from a mother who is often unaware that she is infected. If symptoms do appear they often are exhibited at the end stages of disease when treatment options are limited or ineffective. Acute infection most often occurs through sexual contact with an infected individual or a form of blood exposure such as needle sharing.

Perinatal transmission is the most common mode of infection. As a result, prevention of perinatal transmission is of utmost importance in the Asian community. Since HBV is very efficiently transmitted by unprotected sex, all API adults who are sexually active should be vaccinated to prevent infection.

B型肝炎傳染途徑

Most APIs are infected at birth or early childhood, when symptoms may never develop. Thus the disease can progress undetected. If symptoms do appear, they often appear too late, when the disease has become fatal and when treatment options are limited or ineffective. Only 30% of those with acute infections develop symptoms. When symptoms of hepatitis B infection do develop, they include: 


• Jaundice
• Fatigue
• Abdominal pain
• Loss of appetite 


For those who are infected as newborns, there is a 90% chance of becoming a chronic carrier. For those infected during childhood, there is a 30%-50% chance. Most Asians are exposed to the disease either during the perinatal period or during childhood. There is a 8-15% prevalence rate of the number of chronic carriers within the Asian community.

B型肝炎傳染途徑

"Hepatitis" refers to any disease that results in inflammation of the liver, regardless of how that disease is contracted. 

A型肝炎

A 型肝炎的傳染途徑是「經口感染」也叫做「糞口感染」,也就是說當吃到或喝到遭 A 型肝炎病毒污染(病人的糞便)的食物或飲水時會感染到 A型肝炎。
A型肝炎可經由疫苗預防傳染。

 

B型肝炎

B型肝炎可分為急性與長期感染,可經由受污染的血液與性行為的分泌物水平感染。
B型肝炎可經由疫苗預防傳染。

 

 

C型肝炎

C型肝炎可分為急性與長期感染,是經由受污染的血液水平感染。
C型肝炎目前為止沒有有效的疫苗能預防傳染。
