Summary Viral hepatitis B or C is the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide and accounts for about 80% of all hepatocellular carcinoma cases. Thus, combating viral hepatitis remains one of the most pressing public health issues today. Animal models and cell-based systems are essential tools for addressing the many still unresolved basic and clinical problems. Experimental models are needed to better understand the viral life cycles, pathogenetic aspects and natural defense mechanisms, while preclinical models are required for evaluating novel preemptive and therapeutic strategies.
