Liver Disease in Canada: A Crisis in the Making An Assessment of Liver Disease in Canada Summary of a report prepared by the Canadian Liver Foundation, March 2013 HEPATITIS B Hepatitis B 2 Incidence of acute hepatitis B is declining Acute hepatitis B infection rate over time eterminate cases are cases in which neither acute hepatitis B nor chronic hepatitis B could be determined with certainty. This may have been to confusing serological tests or to inadequate follow-up. http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/id-mi/hepatitisBCan-hepatiteBCan-eng.php
