Professor of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology Professor of Health Sciences University. Dr. Hanefi Cem Gul said viral hepatitis, which caused 1.5 million deaths per year in the world, is an important public health problem.
Rose stated that hepatitis, which is called inflammation of the liver, is caused by many scars, but viral infections are the most common cause.
Hepatitis A, B, C, D and E viruses with developing hepatitis of the most commonly encountered Gul voicing virus, B of this virus, C and D is chronic, in terms of causing cirrhosis and liver cancer also is more prominent told.
Professor Dr. "Viral hepatitis, which causes 1.5 million deaths per year in the world, is an important public health problem," Gul said. Used expressions.
Professor Dr. Rose, given the general characteristics of hepatitis viruses and the disease patterns he has made, stated that hepatitis A is a disease transmitted by contaminated water and food due to poor hygienic conditions, giving the following information:
"Although it is more common in childhood, it is rare, especially when seen in older ages, it can cause severe deaths and deaths." Hepatitis A virus is thrown away from the body, the individuals follow the rules of individual hygiene, washing hands with soap after toilet, good food cleaning, one of the important ways of protection. provided drop our country, the infrastructure conditions in recent years, improvement and especially in 2012, the Ministry of Health compulsory hepatitis a to newborn vaccination results in the incidence of hundred thousand up to 0.9 diseases. "
"HEPATITIS B, CYROZ AND LIVER CARCINOGRAPHY"
Hepatitis B virus also pointed out that with chronic feature Rose, "virus cirrhosis and has also important in terms of causing liver cancer. Were infected with about 2 billion people hepatitis B virus in the world, and from 350 to 400 million people are estimated to also carry the virus "He said.
Professor Dr. Rose, said:
"The most common When the disease transmission routes, control of unscreened blood and blood products transfusion, surgical procedures are performed with unsterilized tools and tooth extractions, used syringes made of intravenous drug use and other applications, the transition from mother to baby carriers of hepatitis B, razor blades, such as toothbrush sharing of tools, made with untreated sterilize instruments piercing is among the most common routes of transmission are unsafe sex. when hepatitis B in adults contracted percent resolve spontaneously over 95. chronicity risk is between 1-3 per cent. However, when newborn infants contracted 90 percent Chronic cases also have a high rate of cirrhosis and cancer development as mentioned above, and the most important way to protect from the disease is the vaccination. "
"MORE THAN 185 MILLION IN THE WORLD IS THOUGHT THAT THE HEPATITIS IS IN INFECTION WITH C"
Professor Dr. Hanafi Cem Gul is likely to be chronic than hepatitis C, while if left untreated voicing cirrhosis and hepatocellular increase the risk of cancer, "the more than 185 million worldwide are estimated to be infected with the hepatitis C. While it is the same with the ways of transmission of Hepatitis B, especially The increase in the use of intravenous drug in the world is an important factor in the transmission of hepatitis C. The disease is a disease that generally silent without giving clinical signs.
The chronicity of adult males in the disease up to 80 percent of chronicized patients, 25 percent of the 20-year period of 20 to 30 years of development of cirrhosis and liver cancer can be stressed Gul, said:
"Hepatitis C is now completely cured by virtue of newly developed medicines in the last 5-6 years, with no vaccination against hepatitis C. Therefore, chronic viral infection is a major precaution for the first time treatment with a chronic viral infection in the world.
Hepatitis D: This virus is a defective virus. It can not infect itself alone. Hepatitis B virus is needed for the virus to be able to reproduce. Therefore, hepatitis D virus only causes hepatitis in people with hepatitis B infection.
Hepatitis E: Transmission routes and clinical signs similar to hepatitis A virus. Hepatitis E can also be found in wild and domestic animals. When hepatitis E is caught in pregnancies in the last 3 months, 20-25% of deaths are important at the time of death. Vaccination is important in protection. Hepatitis E vaccines, which produce high antibody levels abroad, are used. There is no hepatitis E vaccine in our country yet. "
