Core Tip The mechanisms by which alcohol enhances disease progression are less well understood in chronic hepatitis B than in chronic hepatitis C. The association of light-to-moderate alcohol consumption with clinical outcomes in patients with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection appears modest. Although the threshold amount of alcohol for increasing hepatocellular car­cinoma (HCC) risk remains unknown, heavy alcohol consumption significantly accelerates the progression of liver disease to cirrhosis and, ultimately, HCC. Alcohol abuse could impair the response to interferon-α therapy in chronic hepatitis B patients, although not fully confirmed, and can increase the risk of HCC even in patients with low HBV DNA levels during nucleoside/nucleotide therapy.
