FOLLOW UP 5  -  (19/06/2011)

Cap. LIV. 52 HB

2 BID x 60 days

Syp. TRIGUNASAVA

10 ML BID WITH 10ML FRESH WATER  x 60 days

Cap OXYTARD

1 BID x 60 days

FOLLOW UP 6  -  (27/07/2011)

The treatment was continuing. This included evaluation of confirmation of pregnancy status and AST, ALT, HbsAG and HCV status.

At this point after having attained the positive turn in AST and ALT values as early as in May following 2 months of use in July a Negative status has also been attained for Hepatitis B.

Future course as adopted -
The patient remains under observation and the new born shall be evaluated at birth for HBsAg Status to confirm safety during pregnancy and also evaluate the prevention of placental transmission of Hepatitis Antigen across to the developing foetus.

Objectives achieved thus far

1.)    In 4 months of time frame Hepatitis stus has been achieved as Negative.

2.)    AST and ALT values returned to normal in 2 months of time.

3.)    Dependence on a coalesce use of an antiviral drug as lamivudine is not required since the status has been achieved independent of lamivudine once Liv. 52 HB was initiated.

4.)    Safe to use during pregnancy by initial observations as no adverse events were reported except for occassional bloating sensations of the stomach.

Further continuing evaluations

1.)    The status of the baby at birth with respect to HbsAg.

2.)    Since AST and ALT values have been attained at a normal value and are sustained; a long term use may have a potential impact on HCV status as well.

3.)    The patient shall remain under observation for 2 years with observations made 6 monthly since studies show reversal of Hepatitis B status as positive.

4.)    Since patients with a dual status of Hepatits B and Hepatitis C positive are at a long term risk of developing Liver Cancer, the extended evaluations may lend a scope into evaluating a possible role in Liver Cancer.
