Study: Many Individuals Infected with Hepatitis B Virus Will Discover it Too Late; The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) Comments on the Study

Patients with chronic hepatitis B (HBV) who acquire the virus early in life will eventually develop serious health problems too late for treatment, according to a study published in the journal Gut in January, 2015. (1) The CBCD recommends two natural antiviral remedies against the latent HBV.

A study originally published in June 2014, and republished in the same journal this January 2015, shows that people who become infected with the hepatitis B virus early in life can develop serious health problems. However, most infected people do not know that they have the virus. When they discover that they are infected, it is usually too late for effective treatment. The virus is an expert at hiding from the immune system in a latent (slightly dormant) state. When this happens, doctors say that a person has chronic hepatitis B (CHB). In fact, Dr. Revill and colleagues wrote in the study that, “The HBV is regarded as a stealth virus, in part, due to its ability to subvert innate immune responses.” (1) Dr. Revill is from the Victorian Infectious Diseases Reference Laboratory, in Melbourne, Australia. Because the HBV is able to hide from the immune system effectively, it can continue to replicate and produce viral proteins (although on a reduced scale) that nevertheless damage the body. “The adverse consequences of CHB are due primarily to an inadequate and/or inappropriate host immune response. “ (1) The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that infected individuals take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR to help the immune system target the latent HBV.

The formula of Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR formula is effective against the HBV, and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the (hepatitis B and other viruses)…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (2) The study authors also wrote that, “We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (2)

Both products can be ordered online on the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR websites.

Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

In addition to the risks of a latent HBV infection, there is the issue of reactivation. Whenever the immune system is weakened, the virus can spontaneously reactivate. When that happens, problems that usually take a long time to develop suddenly become a reality. As another study points out, “Reactivation of a former hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection can be triggered by immunosuppressive therapy, diseases associated with an immunocompromised state, organ transplantation or the withdrawal of antiviral drugs … (and) … aging, surgical stress and complication of disease(s) associated with compromised immunity, such as cancer, arteriosclerosis and diabetes mellitus may trigger spontaneous HBV reactivation.” (See the Journal of Medical Virology, from January 21, 2015) (3)

According to the World Health Organization, “Hepatitis B is a potentially life-threatening liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus. It is a major global health problem. It can cause chronic liver disease and chronic infection and puts people at high risk of death from cirrhosis of the liver and liver cancer. More than 240 million people have chronic (long-term) liver infections. More than 780,000 people die every year due to the acute or chronic consequences of hepatitis B.” (See the World Health Organization, last updated on July 2014) (4)

In many cases, there are no symptoms to let an individual know that he or she is infected. However, when symptoms do occur, they “appear 90 days (or 3 months) after exposure, but they can appear any time between 6 weeks and 6 months after exposure.” (See the CDC, from June 9, 2009) (4) They can include “fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay-colored bowel movements, joint pain, and jaundice (yellow color in the skin or the eyes).” (5)

“Based on the above information, we recommend that HBV infected individuals take Novirin or Gene-Eden-VIR.” - Greg Bennett, CBCD
