Abstract

Hepatitis D virus (HDV) is a small, RNA-containing virus that requires the concomitant presence of Hepatitis B virus (HBV) in an obligate manner for its survival and pathogenicity. HDV infection is very uncommon in Czech Republic. The results of antiviral therapy of hepatitis D patients are not satisfactory. Alpha-interferon (alpha-IFN) in high doses (9-10 MU three times a week for 12 months) is usually recommended.
