Prevention of Hepatitis B Transmission to Exposed Infants

 


 

Hepatitis B is a bloodborne infection caused by the hepatitis B virus. It is highly infectious and easily spread from an infected mother to her newborn. For a newborn infant who becomes infected with the hepatitis B virus, there is a 90% chance that the infant will become a chronic carrier of the hepatitis B virus. Chronic carriers have a 25% lifetime chance of developing cirrhosis or liver cancer.
