The Liver Meeting® 2014

The Next Generation of HBV Therapy: From Discovery to Cure
Organizers: T. Jake Liang, MD and Prof. Timothy M. Block
Content contributors: Hepatitis B SIG
Monday, November 10, 2014; 4:45pm – 7:50 pm

Chronic hepatitis B infection is associated with a significant risk of liver cirrhosis (LC) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). There are now 7 approved medications to manage chronic hepatitis B, but these require indefinite periods of use, are not indicated for all chronic hepatitis B patients. Moreover, as currently used, these medications reduce the risk of death due to liver disease by only 50-60% after ten years of use. There is therefore a great interest in the professional community in the understanding and knowing about new therapeutics that complement or improve upon the current portfolio. Management patients with chronic hepatitis B and the discovery of new liver disease therapies is a centrally responsive to the AASLD mission. This Single Interest Group (SIG) session will address these issues through colloquia.

Learning Objectives:

  • Predict the next wave of HBV therapeutics.
  • Employ hepatitis research programs in response to the information communicated at the meeting and stimulate interest in collaborative studies.
  • Discuss the status of new HBV drugs in the development pipeline.
