Welcome to icliniq.com.
Hepatitis B can be transmitted by sharing needles, the blood of infected persons, unprotected sexual activity, and saliva.
Acute infection is not usually treated as body overcomes the virus but chronic infection may require treatment with the combination of medications for up to 12 months. The cure rate is high.
