Hepatitis B is a vaccine preventable disease and is the main cause of liver cancer. Asian and Pacific Islanders are the most affected (1 in 12 are infected), compared to other racial groups (1 in 1000 non-Hispanic Whites). Chronic Hepatitis B in the early stages often has no symptoms, and delays can be too late for treatment.
