Özet

Chronic hepatitis B and fasciolosis are associated with the induction of T-cell responses polarized to the Th2 subtype. Interferon-alpha enhances innate immunity as well as Th1 immune response. We present a male patient with chronic hepatitis B and fasciolosis who responded to chronic hepatitis treatment with hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccine, interferon-alpha-2b and Lamivudine.
