Summary Hepatitis delta virus which causes severe acute and chronic liver disease was discovered following the detection of a novel antigen-antibody system in hepatitis B virus carriers. Research into the molecular virology of the HDV life cycle has revealed a collection of biology. These insights are beginning to be translated into treatment strategies
