PMID:  15324949     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In the last several years, numerous studies on the natural history and outcomes of viral hepatitis in dialysis and transplantation have been reported. Despite these, the management of hepatitis C virus or hepatitis B virus-related liver disease in end-stage renal disease continues to be an area of controversy. This article aims to address the current therapeutic options for patients with renal disease and chronic viral hepatitis.
