Key elements of the 2020 HBV Update are listed below and in Figure 1. Since the Panel’s 2015 PCO,2 there has been a series of informative and independent studies to clarify the optimal HBV screening approach. Based on unpublished analyses of data from the National Cancer Database (L. Nogueira, personal communication, January 2020), an estimated 12% of newly diagnosed patients with cancer in 2016 received single-agent hormonal therapy as first-line treatment. Hepatitis D is a defective virus that requires hepatitis B to replicate and is only found with hepatitis B co-infection. The rate of HBV reactivation was lower in patients who received antiviral prophylaxis than in those who did not (1.6% v 15.1%; P < .01). However, the following large, prospective cohort studies3,8,18 provide strong, albeit indirect, evidence that supports universal HBV screening in patients with cancer. In a multicenter, prospective cohort study of HBV status among individuals newly diagnosed with cancer (n = 3,051), Ramsey et al8 found that 21% of patients with chronic HBV had no known risk factors for HBV infection. Past HBV infection refers to patients who have a negative HBsAg with positive anti-HBc, regardless of anti-HBs status; HBV DNA is usually undetectable. For recommendations and strategies to optimize patient-clinician communication, see Patient-Clinician Communication: American Society of Clinical Oncology Consensus Guideline.57 Communication topics of particular relevance to HBV screening and management are briefly discussed below: Patients should be informed of their HBV testing results. The PCO was sent for an open comment period of 2 weeks, allowing the public to review and comment on the recommendations after submitting a confidentiality agreement. The involvement of general practitioners in the early detection of viral hepatitis B and C must be paramount. (|) Hepatitis flare: alanine aminotransferase (ALT) > 100 U/mL and 3 times baseline.17 (¶) Long-term antiviral therapy management for patients with cancer after the cessation of anticancer therapy should follow national hepatology recommendations for all patients with chronic HBV.11,17 An HBV specialist is a clinician experienced in HBV management. CancerLinQ Individuals with chronic hepatitis B are at risk of hepatocellular carcinoma and cirrhosis, but morbidity and mortality are reduced with adequate treatment. Patients with past HBV undergoing anticancer therapies that are not clearly associated with a high risk of HBV reactivation (eg, regimens that do not include anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies or stem-cell transplantation) should be followed carefully during cancer treatment, with HBsAg and ALT testing every 3 months (with subsequent HBV DNA testing if a hepatitis flare develops), with initiation of antiviral therapy only if HBsAg becomes positive or HBV DNA exceeds 1,000 IU/mL in the setting of a hepatitis flare. The Panel further recommends anti-HBs be performed as part of the screening panel. The reactivation risk identified from rituximab has been extended to other anti-CD20 therapies, including obinutuzumab and ofatumumab. Asymptomatic rises in HBV DNA are very different from clinical hepatitis flares and thus should be interpreted with caution depending on the definitions used. A special ultrasound called transient elastography can show the amount of liver damage. Individuals who are negative for HBsAg and anti-HBc, as well as anti-HBs, have never been exposed to HBV, are not immune, and thus are susceptible to HBV infection. We have described the patient population at risk for HBV reactivation in the 2015 PCO.2 In brief, HBV reactivation has been well characterized among patients with HBV with a hematologic malignancy, where the risk of reactivation ranges from 48% among patients with chronic HBV to 18% among those with past HBV.35,36 HBV reactivation has been studied less frequently among patients with HBV with a solid tumor,37 where the risk of reactivation has been estimated to be approximately 25% among those with chronic HBV and 3% among those with past HBV. Additional information is available at www.asco.org/supportive-care-guidelines. Future studies will be needed to make universal HBV screening and linkage to care efficient and systematic, likely based in EHR systems. Findings of chronic HBV (HBsAg-positive) or past HBV (HBsAg-negative and anti-HBc–positive with either negative or positive anti-HBs) infection require further action (Type of recommendation: evidence based, benefits outweigh harms; Strength of recommendation: strong). [16] In adults, hepatitis B infection is most commonly self-limiting, with less than 5% progressing to chronic state, and 20 to 30% of those chronically infected developing cirrhosis or … The risk of reactivation among HBsAg-positive patients with HCC has been reported to be 6% after radiation therapy and 20% after radiation therapy and transarterial chemoembolization in one large retrospective study of 133 patients.42 In another study that included 109 HBsAg-negative/anti-HBc–positive patients with HCC,43 the risk of reactivation was 14% after radiation therapy and transarterial chemoembolization among patients with HCC with past HBV. Specific challenges with checkpoint blockade include the known risks of immune-related hepatitis and further immune suppression and risk of HBV reactivation if patients receive high-dose steroids for immune-related adverse events. Newly diagnosed patients receiving anticancer therapy. J Hepatol. ASCO staff conducted a search for new evidence on HBV screening in individuals with cancer to identify relevant randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that have been published since the 2015 ASCO PCO. Awareness of these disparities in access to care should be considered in the context of this clinical practice guideline, and health care providers should strive to deliver the highest level of cancer care to these vulnerable populations. Anticancer therapy should not be delayed for the results of these screening tests. Evid Rep Technol Assess (Full Rep). Hepatitis Screening : Diagnosis Codes This list of codes applies to the Medical Policy titled Hepatitis Screening. If evidence of HBV infection, do not delay anticancer therapy while obtaining further testing or referrals. Chronic HBV infection refers to patients who are HBsAg-positive regardless of anti-HBc status, although most will be anti-HBc–positive. Follow-up testing after the cessation of anticancer therapy is likely not necessary (Type: informal consensus, benefits outweigh harms; Strength of recommendation: strong). The information addresses only the topics specifically identified therein and is not applicable to other interventions, diseases, or stages of diseases. As such, ALT levels should be monitored frequently, at least monthly for the first 3 months after the cessation of antiviral therapy and every 3 months thereafter (Type of recommendation: informal consensus, benefits outweigh harms; Strength of recommendation: strong). Hepatitis B blood tests detect viral proteins (antigens), the antibodies that are produced in response to an infection, or detect or evaluate the genetic material (DNA) of the virus. Categories for disclosure include employment; leadership; stock or other ownership; honoraria, consulting or advisory role; speaker's bureau; research funding; patents, royalties, other intellectual property; expert testimony; travel, accommodations, expenses; and other relationships. ASCO published an updated PCO on this topic in 2015 that introduced a risk-adaptive clinical algorithm to help clinicians identify and treat patients with HBV infection to reduce their risk of HBV reactivation from anticancer therapy.2 This 2020 PCO update presents a clinically pragmatic approach to HBV screening and management that calls for universal HBV serologic testing of patients at the onset of anticancer therapy. Patients with a positive HBsAg test should be counseled that they are potentially infectious to others through blood-borne, perinatal, and sexual transmission as well as through close household contact.7,17 Screening and vaccination of partners and household contacts is recommended. Hepatitis B Virus Screening Expert Panel Membership. These patients are not at risk for transmission through sexual or close personal contact.17. As such, ALT levels should be monitored frequently, at least monthly for the first 3 months after the cessation of antiviral therapy and every 3 months thereafter. (‡) All other systemic anticancer therapy besides anti-CD20 therapy or stem-cell transplantation. In view of these recent studies, the Panel recommends HBsAg and anti-HBc testing in all patients with cancer prior to systemic anticancer therapy to determine HBV status (Table 3) and appropriate HBV management to prevent HBV reactivation (see HBV Management section). The targeted literature search conducted for this cost section yielded 59 abstracts, of which 6 were considered relevant to the topic of HBV screening and management in patients with cancer anticipating systemic anticancer therapy.63-68 Excluded from consideration by ASCO are cost-effectiveness analyses that lack contemporary cost data and agents that are not currently available in the United States and/or are industry sponsored. This group included about 43% of patients diagnosed with breast cancer and 23% of patients diagnosed with prostate cancer. The draft statements were released to the public for open comment from February 10, 2020, through February 24, 2020. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a major public health burden in France and worldwide. Patients with chronic HBV receiving any systemic anticancer therapy should receive antiviral prophylactic therapy through and for minimum 12 months following anticancer therapy. 2008. Articles were excluded from the review if they were (1) meeting abstracts not subsequently published in peer-reviewed journals; (2) editorials, commentaries, news articles, case reports, narrative reviews, or studies of children; and (3) published in a non-English language. Follow-up testing after the cessation of anticancer therapy is likely not necessary (Type of recommendation: informal consensus, benefits outweigh harms; Strength of recommendation: strong). In accordance with the Policy, the majority of the members of the Expert Panel did not disclose any relationships constituting a conflict under the Policy. All relationships are considered compensated unless otherwise noted.

BMC Infect Dis. Antiviral therapy and management for these patients should follow national HBV guidelines, independent of cancer therapy, including management by a clinician experienced in HBV management for prevention of liver disease such as cirrhosis or liver cancer. Screening Persons at risk of HBV infection should be screened with hepatitis B surface antigen or hepatitis B core antibody or surface antigen antibody testing. Racial and ethnic disparities in health care contribute significantly to this problem in the United States. Findings of chronic HBV (HBsAg-positive) or past HBV (HBsAg-negative and anti-HBc–positive) infection require HBV reactivation risk assessment. The interpretation of HBV test results may be complicated in patients who have received intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) known to produce passive transfer of anti-HBc, leading to false-positive anti-HBc test results.  |  Evid Rep Technol Assess (Full Rep). Get the latest research from NIH: https://www.nih.gov/coronavirus. Absent evidence from RCTs on the comparative utility of risk-based HBV screening versus universal screening strategies or on the predictors of HBV reactivation, especially the risk caused by a myriad of anticancer therapies, the Panel outlined several clinical considerations to support and amplify the recommendations offered in the PCO and associated clinical algorithm (Fig 1). For B cell–modulating agents such as Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibitors (eg, ibrutinib), cases of HBV reactivation have been reported, but the degree of risk has not yet been clearly established.46,47, The decision for oncologists to screen aging patients with cancer who are debilitated or frail and whose life expectancy is limited warrants consideration of risks and benefits of screening and antiviral therapy. In primary care–based HBV screening, an EHR alert in Epic Systems was shown to significantly increase HBsAg testing in a high-risk patient population in a group of providers using alerts compared with a control group (odds ratio, 2.64; 95% CI, 1.88 to 3.73; P < .001).23 In another study, a simple alert system was used to promote the referral of HBsAg patients to hepatologists through EHR, increasing referrals from 28% (5/18) to 73% (11/15; P = .009).24. An alternative approach to screening using both HBsAg and anti-HBc tests would be to advise HBsAg testing in all patients with cancer, regardless of treatment regimen, and to limit anti-HBc testing to those receiving cancer therapy for which there is an appreciable risk of reactivation, thus requiring surveillance and/or antiviral therapy. In another prospective study, Hwang et al3 explored a broader set of HBV risk factors in a study of 2,124 patients with a hematologic malignancy or a solid tumor awaiting systemic anticancer therapy over a 17-month period during 2013-2014 in Houston, Texas. Screening for hepatitis B is recommended in pregnant women at their first prenatal visit and in adolescents and adults at high risk of chronic infection. The definition of HBV reactivation has been inconsistent, which has contributed to imprecise estimates of risk and incidence of reactivation. I = Immediate Family Member, Inst = My Institution. Among the patients with chronic HBV (prevalence, 0.6%; 19/3,050), 21% (n = 4) had no known HBV risk factors. 19. Some people with hepatitis B are sick for only a few weeks (known as “acute” infection), but for others, the disease progresses to … The Clinical Practice Guidelines and other guidance published herein are provided by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Inc. (ASCO) to assist providers in clinical decision making. It is believed that such replication is inhibited by a host’s strong immune control, and thus HBV reactivation occurs only with potent immunosuppression. The information therein should not be relied upon as being complete or accurate, nor should it be considered as inclusive of all proper treatments or methods of care or as a statement of the standard of care. and A.S.A. Patients who are negative for all HBV screening tests (negative HBsAg, anti-HBc, and anti-HBs) are considered not to be immune to HBV, have never been exposed to HBV, and may benefit from HBV vaccination,14 taking into consideration a patient’s clinical situation and timing of anticancer therapy. The rates of antiviral prophylaxis were lower for doctors treating lung, breast, and colorectal cancers than for those treating hematologic malignancies (all P < .05). Tests to diagnose hepatitis B You need to give permission for your doctor to do a hepatitis B test. Anticancer therapy should not be delayed for the results of these screening tests. In Singapore, Hepatitis B screening with HBsAg, anti-HBs and anti-HBc, consultation and immunisation in a primary care subsided setting cost USD$65, USD$8 and USD$40 respectively. The use of words like “must,” “must not,” “should,” and “should not” indicate that a course of action is recommended or not recommended for either most or many patients, but there is latitude for the treating physician to select other courses of action in individual cases. Multi-agent regimens, varied duration of therapy, and effects of prior lines of therapy preclude precise estimates of HBV reactivation, as the risk by drug or class would be unclear. Coordination of care with a clinician experienced in HBV management is highly recommended for patients with chronic HBV, especially to monitor for withdrawal flares, determine monitoring and antiviral therapy after the cessation of anticancer therapy, and evaluate for advanced liver disease such as cirrhosis or liver cancer (Type: informal consensus, benefits outweigh harms; Strength of recommendation: strong). Hormonal therapy alone should not pose a substantial risk of HBV reactivation in patients with chronic HBV receiving hormonal therapy alone; these patients may follow noncancer HBV monitoring and treatment guidance. Hepatitis B vaccination is recommended for medically stable infants weighing 2,000 g or more within 24 hours of birth, unvaccinated infants and children, and unvaccinated adults requesting protection from hepatitis B or who are at increased risk of infection. It is clear that for anti-HBc–positive patients receiving high-risk anticancer therapies like anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies or stem-cell transplantation, the risk of reactivation is substantial and either close monitoring or preemptive antiviral therapy is recommended. Hepatitis flares, presenting as elevated ALT levels, can occur after the discontinuation of antiviral therapy. The risks vary according to patient factors (eg, immune competence, sex, age, family history), viral factors (eg, viral load, genotype), as well as environmental factors (eg, concurrent viral infections, alcohol use, metabolic syndrome).11 Patients with hematologic malignancies and chronic HBV are at high risk of HBV reactivation (approximately 50%) and associated adverse liver outcomes, and, as such, they should receive antiviral prophylaxis to prevent HBV reactivation.17,27,28 Similarly, patients with HCC due to underlying chronic HBV should be continued or treated with antiviral therapy due to the high risk of reactivation—up to 30% after various systemic anticancer therapies including combined chemoradiation.29,30 Antiviral therapy also reduces the risk of HCC recurrence after potentially curative HCC therapy. 2014;161(1):58-66.

Terrault,1 Anna S.F. 1 It is not part of the routine blood tests done by your doctor, so you need to ask for a test. TAPUR Study, Hepatitis B Virus Screening and Management for Patients With Cancer Prior to Therapy: ASCO Provisional Clinical Opinion Update, Implementation of Universal HBV Screening. However, the 2015 updated PCO highlighted that current evidence at that time was insufficient to support HBV testing for patients who had neither HBV risk factors nor anticipated anticancer therapy that was not associated with a high risk of reactivation. Use of the information is voluntary. Table 1 offers a summary of contemporary HBV screening guidelines.  |  2. DOI: 10.1200/JCO.20.01757 Journal of Clinical Oncology In our PCO (Fig 1), we use a simplified cut-off threshold of HBV DNA > 1,000 IU/mL to assist and guide oncology providers with respect to the threshold above which further management is warranted in patients with past HBV infection. All patients with cancer anticipating systemic anticancer therapy should be tested for hepatitis B virus (HBV) by 3 tests—hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis B core antibody (anti-HBc) total immunoglobulin (Ig) or IgG, and antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen (anti-HBs)—prior to, or at the beginning of, systemic anticancer therapy. Articles identified by individual Panel members, combined with results from the formal searches, informed the Panel’s consensus opinions. ASCO specifically disclaims any warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular use or purpose. 2017 Aug;67(2):370-398. doi: 10.1016/j.jhep.2017.03.021. European Association for the Study of the Liver. Patients with past HBV undergoing other systemic anticancer therapies not clearly associated with a high risk of HBV reactivation should be monitored with HBsAg and alanine aminotransferase during cancer treatment; antiviral therapy should commence if HBV reactivation occurs. All patients who developed HBV reactivation and had evidence of active HBV disease (defined in this study as reverse HBsAg seroconversion from HBsAg-negative to HBsAg-positive or an increase in ALT > twice upper limit of normal) received antiviral therapy, and all had normalization of ALT with return of HBV DNA to undetectable levels. Hormonal therapy without systemic anticancer therapy is unlikely to increase the risk of HBV reactivation in patients with chronic or past HBV. TABLE 4. Acute hepatitis B is defined as the discrete onset of symptoms, the presence of jaundice or elevated serum alanine transaminase levels, and test results showing hepatitis B surface antigen and hepatitis B core antigen. Effective Date: October 14, 2020 Applicable Codes The following list(s) of procedure and/or diagnosis codes is The following summarizes the interpretation of test results with these three serologic tests (). ASCO PCOs are updated by an Expert Panel on the basis of periodic review and analysis of new information on the topic. The PubMed database was searched from January 2014 to January 2020 (Data Supplement). Hepatitis B surface antibody Marker of immunity a The presence of anti-HBs is generally interpreted as indicating recovery and immunity from HBV infection. Epub 2017 Sep 28. An alternative approach to antiviral prophylaxis among patients with past HBV and a hematologic malignancy was evaluated by Seto et al32 but requires commitment to careful clinical and laboratory monitoring. Hepatitis flares, presenting as elevated ALT levels, can occur after the discontinuation of antiviral therapy. Study participants were tested for HBV and completed a 19-item HBV risk survey based on the CDC hepatitis risk assessment that was modified to include ethnicity/race variables. The risk of HBV reactivation among patients with solid tumors—who make up the majority of patients with cancer—is very likely lower than for patients with hematologic malignancies. However, this study’s resultant poor positive predictive value (9%) of this selective tool discourages use of an HBV risk factor approach to screening patients with cancer for HBV. We thank Jeremy Kortmansky, MD, and Dorinda Sparacio and the Clinical Practice Guidelines Committee for their thoughtful reviews and insightful comments on this Provisional Clinical Opinion (PCO). In 2015, Brasseur et al18 published a study of 388 patients with a solid tumor who completed a brief survey about potential risks for HBV infection—including birth place in high HBV-prevalence area, drug use, and transfusions, among others—and who had HBV testing over a 14-month period of time during 2012-2013 in Reims, France. It is important to test for HIV prior to starting entecavir, tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, or tenofovir alafenamide in patients with HBV, since these medications have anti-HIV properties, and HIV monotherapy is not recommended for patients with HIV. There is a simple blood test to diagnose a hepatitis B infection. A positive anti-HBs alone (with negative HBsAg and anti-HBc) indicates vaccine-induced protective immunity and would not require further testing or management. In summary, patients with chronic HBV receiving any systemic anticancer therapy should be started on antiviral prophylaxis for the duration of anticancer therapy, as well as for at least 12 months after receipt of the last anticancer therapy, and they should have a baseline HBV DNA prior to or at the beginning of their anticancer therapy, as well as every 6 months during antiviral therapy. You should make sure your doctor does all three hep B tests. JCO Oncology Practice Patients who are positive for anti-HBc and anti-HBs have resolved hepatitis B infection and should be counseled that they are at risk, albeit lower than if they had a negative anti-HBs, of HBV reactivation.

Screening for Hepatitis B Dianne Tarrant, FNP-BC, Joan Block, BSN, and Brian McMahon, MD ABSTRACT Patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection are … Systems-based approaches have been used to address barriers to the implementation of universal HBV screening in primary care populations. In addition, patients with past HBV, especially those who are not receiving anti-CD20 therapy or stem-cell transplantation, have a lower risk of HBV reactivation than those with chronic HBV; studies should be conducted to elucidate optimal clinical care paths for these patients. Get the latest public health information from CDC: https://www.coronavirus.gov. Negatives HBs-Ag schließt eine Hepatitis D aus, da das Hepatitis-D-Virus nur zusammen mit dem Hepatitis-B-Virus auftreten kann. They can be used to distinguish acute and chronic infections.Laboratory diagnosis of hepatitis B infection focuses on the detection of the hepatitis B surface antigen HBsAg. Patients with chronic HBV receiving any systemic anticancer therapy should receive antiviral prophylactic therapy for the duration of anticancer therapy, as well as for at least 12 months after receipt of the last anticancer therapy. (†) Past HBV: HBsAg-negative, anti-HBc–positive, regardless of anti-HBs status. We lack evidence in patients with MCC. Currently, there is a lack of data to accurately ascertain the risk of HBV reactivation by anticancer class or specific drug, apart from the established high risk after anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies or stem-cell transplantation. We used age and region to subcategorize the results. The Expert Panel met via teleconference and webinar, and the group corresponded through e-mail. There is no evidence that antiviral treatment is effective for acute hepatitis B. J.P.H. All members of the Expert Panel completed ASCO’s disclosure form, which requires disclosure of financial and other interests, including relationships with commercial entities that are reasonably likely to experience direct regulatory or commercial impact as a result of promulgation of the guideline. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a partly double-stranded DNA virus that causes acute and chronic liver infection. Members of the Expert Panel were responsible for reviewing and approving the penultimate version of the PCO, which was then circulated for external review and submitted to Journal of Clinical Oncology for editorial review and consideration for publication. JCO OP DAiS, ASCO eLearning A total of 7 of the 10 respondents either agreed or agreed with slight modifications with the recommendations, and 3 of the respondents disagreed with at least one of the recommendations. HBV DNA should be obtained at baseline and followed every 6 months during antiviral therapy. Treatment should be individualized based on clinical and laboratory characteristics and the risks of developing cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. 1 hepatitis B of this manuscript 2018 hepatitis B surface antigen for more than 6 during!
