Hepatitis killed 1.34 million people in 2015, numbers likely to increase: WHO report 22.4.2017 DNA: Top News
An estimated 325 million people are living with hepatitis B or C and few are aware of their condition, with death tolls from the viruses rising, the UN said today. The World Health Organization's latest hepatitis report identifies the condition as a grave public health threat that needs an "urgent response." Hepatitis killed 1.34 million people in 2015, a toll roughly in-line with HIV and tuberculosis. But in contrast to HIV and TB, hepatitis deaths are increasing, WHO said, recording a 22 per cent mortality rise from 2000 to 2014. Hepatitis is often symptom free, but types B and C can trigger liver cirrhosis and cancer if untreated. Lack of awareness among those infected is driving the virus's spread. For hepatitis B -- which is spread through bodily fluids like blood and semen -- only nine percent of those infected know their status. And for hepatitis C, primarily spread through blood, just 20 per cent of those infected are aware of their condition. Lack of access to testing and treatment leaves ...

Alcohol abuse top cause of liver failure 20.4.2017 TOI: India
Alcohol use has gone up from 16.1% to 25.6% among urban dwellers in Delhi in the past 20 years, while alcohol use in rural areas in the corresponding period is nearly four times — from 8% to 33.2%, according to recent survey published in Global Heart, a reputed medical journal. This is not very different from what has been observed by AIIMS, India’s premier medical institute. AIIMS has reported a rise in the number of patients with alcohol-related liver failure. Worse, death rate among these patients is much higher than mortality from liver failure by Hepatitis B virus, a common cause of infection in the organ in the country.

Hepatitis tied to Parkinson's risk 7.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Hepatitis infection may increase the risk for Parkinson's disease, though the reasons for the link remain unknown. British investigators used records of 1,00,390 patients hospitalised with various forms of hepatitis or HIV from 1999 to 2011. They compared Parkinson's incidence in these patients with incidence in more than six million people admitted for medical or surgical conditions like cataracts, knee replacement or varicose veins. The study, in Neurology, found that people with hepatitis B had a 76% higher risk of having Parkinson's, and people with hepatitis C a 51% higher risk, than the control group. Those with other forms of hepatitis or HIV had no increased risk. The study was restricted to hospitalised patients, and the authors did not have detailed information about the severity and treatment of the diseases. "We can't be sure what is underlying this association," said the lead author, Dr Julia Pakpoor, a researcher at the University of Oxford. "It could be the treatment for the hepatitis, or ...
