Hepatitis B is an infectious disease caused by the hepatitis B virus (“HBV”). Individuals who develop chronic HBV are at much greater risk for liver disease later on in their life. The greatest risk posed is potential cirrhosis of the liver and hepatocellular carcinoma. The U.S. is the largest individual market and is growing rapidly.
Chronic Hepatitis B
Herpes Zoster (Shingles)
Herpes zoster, also commonly known as shingles, is a neurological disorder caused by the reactivation of varicella zoster virus, the same virus that causes chicken pox. Based on recent research and publications, we estimate that there are over four million cases of shingles in the U.S., Europe and Japan each year.
