The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) published a revised version of its "Practice Guidelines for Management of Chronic Hepatitis B" in the September 2009 issue of Hepatology. Key changes are new recommendations for first-line and second-line antiviral therapy, reflecting the latest research on hepatitis B virus (HBV) treatment and the recent approval of tenofovir (Viread) for this indication.
