How Liver Diseases Are Treated With Cultured Liver Cells:
Hepatitis B

    Our six year clinical experience shows that transplantations of cultured hepatoblasts and hepatocytes (cell therapy) depending on a stage of hepatitis B infection may:
  • transform chronic hepatitis B infection into inactive carrier stage;
  • prevent progression of HBV infection to cirrhosis;
  • result in significant reversal of preexisting cirrhosis.
  • In some cases combination treatment may be necessary (i.e. cell therapy plus medicinal treatment and/or immunotherapy)


 


33 year old male patient with decompensated liver cirrhosis, ascites, and jaundice as a result of viral hepatitis.


Distended and engorged veins (as a result of portal hypertension) are seen on the surface of abdomen. Visible abdomen distension as a result of ascites (accumulation of fluid in the peritoneal cavity).
