  • Overview

    In November of 2017 HEPLISAV-B was approved for the prevention of hepatitis B. HePLISAV-B is a two-dose vaccine administered 4 weeks apart. It will be important for health care providers to be aware of these new options. Health care providers will need to understand how HEPLISAV-B compares to other commercially available hepatitis B vaccines. In addition, numerous limitations exist with the oral antiviral medications currently used to treat patients chronically infected with hepatitis B. New research is promising that we will have new oral antiviral therapies in the next 5 years. We will review the limitations with the current treatments and discuss agents that are currently in the pipeline.
