Abstract: Two billion people have been infected with Hepatitis B virus worldwide and over 400 million people are chronically infected. Those with chronic Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infections usually die from liver cancer but can be treated effectively if therapy starts early enough. Currently, the only reliable method is a direct biopsy, which is invasive, expensive, and is rarely applied. With the goal of creating a simple point-of-care device to more easily diagnose and monitor treatment, a biomarker was discovered and utilized to create a biosensor to detect liver cancer. This biosensor requires only a drop of human blood, is rapid, inexpensive, and portable.
