LEDRO CANO, D. et al. Evidence-based medicine treatment of chronic viral hepatitis B and C. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2000, vol.17, n.12, pp.44-48. ISSN 0212-7199.

Worldwide, viral hepatitis is the most common cause of jaundice, chronic liver disease, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Although mayor advances have been made in the field of treatment and prevention, there is not a totally satisfactory treatment for each of both diseases. They account for a high percentage of the etiology of viral hepatitis and have a tendency towards chronicity and developing cirrhosis, resulting in a tremendous waste of medical resources. On the other hand, their treatments are long-term ones and the drugs, which are employed, are expensive. Thus, it is necessary to make an evidence-based medicine approach in this particular kind of illness to obtain the best benefit/cost ratio . In this current review, we analyzed the different drugs and therapeutic schedules, which are used in the chronic viral hepatitis B and C, and as well as their obtained response.

Palabras clave : Randomized controlled trials; Chronic hepatitis C; Chronic hepatitis B; Treatment.
