Viral hepatitis in Ukraine occupies a dominant position in the structure of infectious pathology. This group includes up to 30% of all infectious diseases, except influenza and acute infectious diseases of the upper respiratory tract.

Among the many pathogens, a special place belongs to the viral hepatitis A, B and C. Distinguishes these pathogens from each other not only the structure and routes of transmission, but also the frequency of subsequent chronic lesion of the liver, its cirrhosis and primary cancer. Viral hepatitis B and C give a significantly higher percentage of transition to chronic form than hepatitis A. When hepatitis B it is 10-20%, with hepatitis C - up to 80%. These varieties of hepatitis are the biggest problem of modern infectious diseases due to the possible development of cirrhosis and liver cancer. According to the World Health Organization, 57% of cases of liver cirrhosis and 78% of cases of primary liver cancer are due to chronic viral hepatitis B or C.

About 2 million people die each year from the effects of parenteral hepatitis. The cost of treatment and the study of these diseases require a lot of effort.
