the first result of pegintf is at 24 weeks, if you are at 11th week it is too early, it might even rise in this period
is baseline hbsag 18iu/ml?why you did not write the unit after the number?
if it is something like 10-20iu/ml you ll clear 99%, according to genotype even values 200iu/ml are cleared with highest probability.the rule is the lower hbsag the more pegintf response because it has been found that hbsag suppresses both interferon and our immune system
all the studies of hbsag kinetics on peginterferon, you have to look for the latest studies on 2012-2013, only european studies and some asian ones since other countries dont use hbsag quantitative.also all members of the community who cleared fast had low hbsag
all the studies are also posted here if you search carefully
it is also obvious it is well known since 2009 that high hbsag makes pegintf non response
steady peintf levels are reached only between 5th and 8th week so you can only expect a decline kinetics between 12th and 24th weeks, if no decline after the 24th week then we can assume there is no response
