In brief: Hepatitis B

Hepatitis b virus infection is dangerous.
It is transmitted by contact with infected body fluids. In its milder forms it causes liver inflammation and jaundice but rarely death. In its chronic form - it can cause liver cancer and cirrhosis. It is easily prevented by a vaccine.
