A b s t r a c t Background and aim: The relationship between exposure to hepatitis B virus (HBV) and atherosclerosis-associated disease morbidity has not been clearly elucidated.

Conclusions: Hepatitis B virus may not be a risk factor for atherosclerosis-associated diseases, but further studies that employ more sensitive clinical parameters are needed to verify this result.
