Hepatitis, the leading indication for liver transplantation, is a straight-forward disease when it comes to diagnosis: it is a disease of pathology and is diagnosed by liver biopsy, with the result being either positive or negative. There is only one effective treatment: interferons. Nonetheless, new interferons are appearing on the market and Drs Foster and Goldin examine the use of each of these in the management of chronically infected patients. The authors have written a succinct, highly illustrated text for all those interested in the management of viral hepatitis.
