Core Tip Prior to anti-CD20 antibody (Ab) treatment in 2014, 61%-73% of 19304 Veterans had hepatitis B virus (HBV) tests. Of these, 11% tested were positive for hepatitis B surface antigen or core antibody and at risk for reactivation; ≤ 37% of these HBV+ patients received HBV antivirals during anti-CD20 Ab and follow-up. HBV+ patients had significantly higher hepatitis rates than HBV-. Among pretreatment HBV- patients, about 1 in 300 tested suffered acute hepatitis during anti-CD20 Ab and 12 mo follow-up. Electronic health record algorithms to increase HBV testing, antiviral use and vaccination will likely improve outcomes with anti-CD20 Ab treatment.
