The Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Viral Hepatitis is a joint Infectious Disease Division/Gastrointestinal Unit effort created to provide expertise and care to patients living with chronic viral hepatitis, including hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV).
The Center for Viral Hepatitis offers the following services:
Full phlebotomy, diagnostic laboratory, and radiographic facilities are available on site, including microbiological and histopathological evaluations. We provide counseling and testing for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Translators for common languages and most other languages are available with advance notice. An outpatient pharmacy is available in the hospital.
We are currently enrolling patients in clinical trials for hepatitis C.
The practice is staffed by a team of individuals trained in infectious disease with experience and expertise in the diagnosis, evaluation and management of viral hepatitis.
Hepatitis A is a highly contagious and sometimes serious liver disease caused by the hepatitis A virus.
Hepatitis B is a blood-borne microorganism transmitted by exposure to the hepatitis B virus through infectious body fluids.
Hepatitis C (once called non-A, non-B hepatitis) is a liver disease caused by a recently identified blood-borne virus.
