Viral hepatitis is a global health problem that affects hundreds of millions of children and adults. Although multiple pathogens have been associated with hepatitis, three in particular (Hepatitis A, B, and C) are responsible for the majority of virally linked hepatitis cases. Chronic viral hepatitis B and C are a major cause of chronic liver disease which may manifest as liver fibrosis and cirrhosis leading to liver cancer and the need for liver transplantation.
Siemens delivers a comprehensive hepatitis disease management portfolio to provide crucial serologic test results with excellent sensitivity and specificity, minimizing the need for repeat confirmatory testing. Our molecular diagnostic viral load monitoring and genotyping assays provide physicians with critical information that aids in optimizing treatment decisions.
