7                Hepatitis B is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). Symptoms may include
8                tiredness, poor appetite, fever and nausea. Urine may become darker in color. A person may
9                develop jaundice (a yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes). The symptoms may appear
10                1 1/2 to 6 months after exposure, but usually within 3 months. Not everyone who is infected will
11                have all or any of the symptoms. Hepatitis B virus is not spread by casual contact. Hepatitis
12                B virus can be found mainly in the blood, but sometimes in the saliva, semen and other body
13                fluids of an infected person. It is spread by direct contact with infected body fluids, frequently
14                by needlestick injury or sexual contact. The virus can be found in blood and other body fluids
15                several weeks before symptoms appear and may last for several months afterward. Approximately
16                6 to 10 of infected adults become long-term carriers of the virus; this percentage is much
17                higher (70-90 percent) for children infected very early in life.
