- Chronic hepatitis B, HBV DNA +ve , increased ALT, no HBV treatment B, HBeAg -ve

- Chronic hepatitis B, undergoing 'flare' of hepatitis

Group B inclusion criteria:

- To be HIV/HBV co-infected

All patients:

- To be over 18 years
Minimum age
18 Years

Summary
Brief summary
It remains unclear why some individuals are able to clear HBV from their bodies while in
others HBV is a persistent infection. We plan to investigate this process by collecting blood
and analysing how the patient's white blood cells respond to different pieces of the HBV
virus. We will use new tools that can precisely tell us which component of the immune
response may be different in individuals who are chronically infected with HBV and also in
individuals who are also infected with HIV.

The primary aims are therefore:

1. To characterize HBV-specific T cell responses in HBV chronic carriers, and identify
novel immunogenic regions in both HLA-A2+ and non-HLA-A2+ individuals.

2. To determine the effect of HIV infection on HBV-specific T-cell responses
