The quantitative HBsAg was 0.05 and the test says it can detect upto 0.05 IU/ml . It means its not negative

Anti HBs antibody was 0.56  2 years ago and now its 5.6

you should continue pegintf because hbsag is not und yet and hbsab is not 100-200miu/ml, you are very close to it i think additional 24 weeks will consolidate hbv clearance

this is very important because even when hbsag goes und there is still a lot of it and only high hbsab can neutralize it.if you stop now you may relapse
