In chronic hepatitis patients, vitamin therapy is often necessary , like vitamin B12. When simultaneous of chronic hepatitis C and Biermer's disease, is it safe to administer Vitamin B12 ?, since non-Hodgkin lymphoma can be a complication of Chronic hepatitis ?

Very ambitious to cover such a broad topic. Good effort. But too superficial given the breadth of the topic.
