Hepatitis B [electronic resource]: After Diagnosis

Most patients with untreated hepatitis B show no symptoms until liver damage has already taken a toll. This program highlights the importance for those at risk to overcome the perceived stigma of the disease and be tested for or vaccinated against it. Routes of transmission, its prevalence among Asian Americans (nearly one in ten are HBV-positive), the possibility of cirrhosis if treatment is avoided, and the pharmaceuticals used to control HBV are all covered, with input from both patients and physicians. Dr. Tom Tran of the Asian Pacific Health Center addresses the sometimes-prohibitive cost of therapy and the work his center does to help the uninsured receive care.

The Liver: Series 2 [electronic resource]

It was thought that only alcoholics got cirrhosis of the liver, but doctors now realize that this is not necessarily the case, and that our genes and other aspects of our lifestyles all play their part in damaging the organ. This episode follows the story of Philip Parker, who is on the waiting list for a liver transplant. Surgeons are filmed replacing his liver. Dr. Alice Roberts also visits scientists at Newcastle University who hope to be able to grow replacement livers from stem cells obtained from a baby's umbilical cord. Although the liver has the ability to regenerate, with liver disease on the increase both from alcohol and other causes, this is an organ in peril.
