Hepatitis disease meaning the inflammation of the liver (hepat=liver,
itis=inflammation) is a serious caused usually by hepatitis virus with
millions of people infected throughout the world. The discussion of
hepatitis diseases appears regularly in other related newsgroups such as, and bionet.virology, with demands for
more information on the disease or even requests for help on particular
issues conerning hepatitis. There is a mailing list for hepatitis C
patients, and it is increasing daily in size. The mailing list members
(more than 150) are interested in such newsgroup, because it will be
there gateway to the world for getting more support and information.

I also found many supporters for the creation of this newsgroup, when
I had posted a pre-RFD enquiry to bionet.virology.


The proposed newsgroup would be devoted to all aspects and kinds of
hepatitis diseases. This newsgroup would be a good place where all
people interested in the disease (doctors and experts in this field)
can communicate with each other and share views and opinions.
Not forgetting millions of people who are infected with hepatitis,
this newsgroup would give support to those people and would be a good
place for them to interact with the experts.
Let me make it clear here that the creation of this newsgroup is
not intended to fractionate or separate hepatitis discussion in any
other related newsgroup, but is to create a new specialized discussion
forum on hepatitis diseases. So, articles regarding hepatitis
cross-posted to other related newsgroups are welcomed.

A partial list of the intended topics would be:

        -All types of viral hepatitis and non viral hepatitis.
        -Prognosis and symptoms of hepatitis.
        -Complications of hepatitis.
        -The chronic carrier state.
        -Vaccines and {*filter*}.
        -Epidemiology of hepatitis.
        -Books, journals, articles and newsletters related to hepatitis.
        -Support for hepatitis patients.

There is a plan to establish a gateway between HEPV-L mailing list
and the newsgroup.
