Hepatitis B – Treatment in Israel

Hepatitis B (HBV) is an infectious liver disease caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV) that attacks the liver, and this inflammatory disease can be either acute or chronic. HBV is a serious health problem worldwide, with the WHO estimating that it leads to one million deaths each year. At The Center for Liver Diseases at Sheba Medical Center in Israel, we offer advanced, tailored treatments in our state-of-the-art inpatient and outpatient clinics. Specialists from a variety of medical disciplines will work together to design your integrative treatment plan.

Treatments at Sheba

To determine the most effective, personalized treatment for your case of hepatitis B, Sheba’s physicians will perform a comprehensive examination of your condition. With a total dedication to providing individualized care, we will ensure that you benefit from the best therapies for your unique needs.

Treating acute hepatitis B:

If you are diagnosed with acute HBV, it is possible that adequate rest, drinking plenty of fluids and electrolytes, and eating nutritiously are sufficient treatments to enable your immune system to fight the infection.

Treating chronic hepatitis B:

If you are diagnosed with chronic HBV, you might require lifelong monitoring and antiviral treatment. At our Center for Liver Diseases, we provide consultation regarding the need for antiviral medication, customize the treatment individually and offer various critical procedures for patients with cirrhosis and its complications, including draining ascitic fluid, administering IV medications, and placing a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) for selected patients. We also provide consultation regarding the available options to treat hepatic encephalopathy and upper GI bleeding. We also evaluate and advise patients who require a liver transplantation due to hepatitis B.

Our treatments for chronic HBV include

Specialized antiviral medications

Our experts offer the most modern, cutting-edge antiviral medications. These drugs are taken orally and can help fight hepatitis B by suppressing the replication of the virus and weakening its ability to damage your liver and lead to cirrhosis, liver failure, or primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma). Currently, there are three major antiviral drugs that are considered highly effective.

To match you with the most efficient and individualized antiviral drugs, Sheba specialists will perform diagnostic testing to determine the extent of your liver inflammation and scarring. These diagnostic tests include a non-invasive fibroscan test, elastography to measure the elasticity of your liver tissue, or an ultrasound-guided liver biopsy to obtain a definitive diagnosis.

Interferon injections

Interferon is a substance that your body produces naturally to help fight infection. Interferon injections involve taking a synthetic version of this substance.
