Welcome to the Special Issue, “Viral Hepatitis Research”, of the International Journal of Molecular Biology. Hepatitis A virus (HAV), HBV, HCV, HDV, and HEV cause acute hepatitis, chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, and/or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). All still present important health issues worldwide. Although effective vaccines or drugs, such as direct acting antivirals against HCV, have been developed for HAV and HBV or HBV and HCV infection, respectively, a lot of issues still exist in clinical practice and basic research areas. This Special Issue will present the latest findings related to viral hepatitis and the associated HCC. Original research and review articles on all topics concerning viral hepatitis research in health and disease are invited. It is my greatest pleasure to invite research scientists and clinicians from all relevant fields to submit their articles for this timely Special Issue. Please accept my special thanks for choosing to publish in the International Journal of Molecular Biology. I look forward to your submissions for this highly important Special Issue.
Dr. Tatsuo Kanda
