5% (source: Toronto Notes, 2005)
hbv becoming chronic is low in adults, and more than 10 times higher in children (that's why vaccine important in children)
There is no treatment for any acute hepatitis....
For chronic hep .. Lamuvidine, inteferon, and adenofir (I'm not exactly sure of the last one)
2-7% or 10% is the percentage of adults who develop chronic infection.
for acute no treatment
