Hepatitis B is a vaccine preventable liver disease caused by the infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV). Hepatitis B is transmitted by either percutaneous or mucous membrane contact with infected blood or other body fluids. Generally saliva is not considered as an important mode of transmission of HBV, but it may be a vehicle of HBV DNA transmission. To explore the hypothesis of the potential risk of saliva as a route of transmission the amounts of HBV in saliva will be examined.
