Liver allografts from donors previously exposed to hepatitis B virus (HBV) carry the risk of transmission of HBV infection to immunosuppressed recipients. However, exclusion of donor candidates with the serologic evidence of resolved hepatitis B-HBV surface antigen (HbsAg) negative and HBV core antibody (anti-HBc) positive-is not feasible in countries endemic for HBV.
