Even in this nonreplicative low-level HBV infection, replication may persist, and some intact HBV particles may be released into the circulation. In most cases, hepatic inflammation and necrosis become quiescent during this phase, but cirrhosis, if present, remains unchanged. A small proportion of HBsAg carriers, in the range of 1-2% per year, may lose detectable circulating HBsAg and develop anti-HBs. 4. EPIDEMIOLOGY Hepatitis B virus infection may be transmitted to susceptible contacts by either acutely or persistently infected persons.

38 MICHAEL A. GERBER autologous hepatocytes in patients with chronic HBV infection suggested that T lymphocytes were cytotoxic for hepatocytes with HBcAg or HBeAg, but not for hepatocytes with HBsAg, on the cell surface. 47- 52 If confmned, it follows that hepatocytes with active HBV replication and expression of nucleocapsid antigens on the cell surface may be attacked by cytotoxic T lymphocytes. This mechanism may result in the elimination of the virus and termination of the infection. The necrotic debris is phagocytosed by macrophages or Kupffer cells.
