AbstractOrthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) for hepatitis B (HBV) related liver disease is associated with a high risk of recurrence and graft loss. HBV infection is a prevalent cause of end-stage liver disease in Asia, but HBV recurrence following OLT in Asians is associated with a more virulent course and a poorer graft survival.1 Passive immunoprophylaxis with hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG) is costly and may not be completely effective, particularly in patients who are positive for HBVDNA.2 We studied the efficacy and safety of a nucleoside analogue, lamivudine, without HBIG for prophylaxis of HBV reinfection in Asian patients undergoing OLT.
