Abstract

Clinico-Demographic Profile and Status of Hepatitis B Immunization among Chronic Kidney Disease Patients Seeking Tertiary Hospital Care

As Hepatitis B is associated with worse outcome, greater tendency towards chronicity and more likelihood of a carrier state in uraemic patients, control of Hepatitis B infection has been a continuous challenge in the management of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). This study aims to analyse clinico-demographic and laboratory profile of chronic kidney disease patients and highlight the hepatitis B immunization status among such patients.
