Due to hepatitis, it is estimated that globally 1.34 million people died per year and it is also reported that about 80% of cases of liver cancer are only caused by hepatitis B and Hepatitis C together. The number of patients having this infection is amplifying each year, which is quite an alarming situation (1).
