The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates about 3.5 million Americans are infected with hepatitis C and that infection rates are growing rapidly due to the nation’s opioid crisis. In AGA’s Digestive Diseases Self-Education Program’s® (DDSEP 9) chapter on the viral hepatitis, Duke University Medical Center’s Steve Choi, MD, and Yuval Patel, MD, MHS, review the five major viruses and provide learners with an in-depth understanding of:

    • Immune responses when patients are infected.
    • Clinical features of acute and chronic viral hepatitis.
    • Extrahepatic manifestation associated with various forms of the hepatitis.
    • Testing, management and treatment options.

Written by leading experts, DDSEP 9 is the industry’s premiere educational tool for clinicians to stay current on GI developments and for fellows preparing for ABIM certification. Learn more about viral hepatitis and a wealth of other important GI patient care subjects.
