Core Tip

Core Tip: With the significant increase in the incidence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in China, the number of patients with co-morbid chronic hepatitis B (CHB) and NAFLD has gradually increased. This letter comments on a published study which showned that CHB patients treated with tenofovir alafenamide (TAF) had higher levels of total cholesterol than CHB patients treated with entecavir; however, TAF-induced dyslipidemia did not increase the incidence of NAFLD. We comment on the article.
