    Factors associated with serum hepatitis B RNA levels include HBV e antigen status, serum alanine aminotransferase, HBV genotype and the presence of basal core promoter mutations, according to recently published data from a multi-ethnic cohort study.
    “HBV RNA in serum is a novel and promising marker for transcriptional activity and could thus be used to monitor response for currently available treatment, but in particular for future HBV treatments targeting the HBV life cycle,” Margo J.H. van Campenhout, MD, from the Erasmus MC University
