change doctor right away, lamivudine is not a first line hbv drug anymore because it made only virus mutations, it is too weak and just worsen hbv infection to extremely dangerous mutants

the only hbv drugs are: tenofovir (most potent no resistance), peginterferon (no resistance, the only one to cure hbv in a low percentage), entecavir (this cannot be used if lamivudine was used because of the mutants)

monitoring hbvdna is only useful for confirming drug is working or not, it means nothing to hbv infection, only hbsag quantity can show if infection is clearing

with a baseline value of hbsag around 700iu/ml the best drug to cure hbv and clear definitively was peginterferon or peginterferon plus tenofovir.get a real liver specialist as soon as possible and change drug to peginterferon or tenofovir, your only choice, you cannot use entecavir after using lamivudine

just for the readers lamivudine is out of guidelines as first line hbv drug, and complitely out of guidelines in most advanced countires for hbv almost a decade
it should never be used on hbv, among the mutants there are some that are not curable even if hbsag becomes negative, hbvdna und and normal ast-alt

hbvdna undetected means nothing, all antivirals make hbvdna und by time but all develop resistance,  you have to use tenofovir to avoid resistance and lower hbsag, hbsag loss should happens in about 2 decades by tenofovir

you understood nothing about hbv, it takes decades to clear hbv and hbsag by tenofovir while it will never be cleared by other antivirals which likly make resistance
hbvdna means nothing to clearance of hbv and only tenofovir is safe as close as possible to no resistance

the only way to clear hbv fast is peginterferon add when, like in your case, hbsag is less than 1000-1500iu/ml.antivirals are very very very slow even when hbsag is 100-400iu/ml

That's what I am trying to study about. Hep B is an immune disease. Most people gets rid of it with their immune system unless you are born with it or got it in early childhood. IFN is recommended by most dr because they know most people are not stringent about their diet and will not cut down smoking/alcohol/fast food.

Weird that even West Africa do HBsAg value and not Australia or USA.

that is normal, antivirals have no effect on hbv they just lower replication and liver damage but the number of infected cells rise....so at begining hbsag can elevate a little

if you are using entecavir change it to tenofovir, i also started with entecavir and hbsag only rose, tenofovir has more activity on hbsag but keep inmind you need at least:
1 year on tdf with hbvdna fully und, better 2 or 3 years if possible
1 year of pegintf add on

this is the only way to clear hbsag today

I know this disease is very stress and time consuming. You think about it all the time. I do too as well. But definitely you must try and live a healthy lifestyle and try to boost your immune system by all avenue. As long as you do all the right thing like not stressing your liver, quit smoking, stop alcohol and no junk food. Also, try to eat all the food your liver loves.

It's hard for it to disappear overnight but maybe with some hard work and some medicine (western or herbal), it will progress towards a positive outcome, slowly but surely.

Definitely LAM is not the anti-viral you want. TDF should be ranked #1 in anti-viral.

Do you experience any symptoms?

no stopping antivirals suddenly without taking a new one will ruin everything plus pegintf monotherapy has 7% hbsag clearance which is nothing, so you are wasting your time and money if you go this way

the only way to make it work is hbvdna und by tenofovir 1-2years and then peg add on, this way hbsag clearance is 50%, note even in this case the clearance is 50% and not 100%

since it is out of most intl guidelines as first line hbv treatment i dont see any other reason to prescribe lam instead of tdf, just warn her that in case of lam resistance that ends up to almost 85-90% he/she will pay all the damage possibly in jail...at least this is where you may get such a doctor in my country for prescribing out of guidelines dangerous drugs

A reduction of about 170iu/ml of hbsag within 4months without meds, guess if the reduction remains constant, the predictive time for hbsag seroconversion will be around 1 and half a year.

the only way is go to india and buy it there, generics of pegintf are made by roches but different name and lower price

i do suggest to spend money on pegintf only if hbsag is low and the chances of hbsag drop are very high.it is not good to spend money without results

also tenofovir is very cheap in india

good then we already know you are in the range of very high response, to get close to 91% of hbsag clearance we should use sequential tdf and then pegintf add on

what is your hbvdna level?

choices are:
pegintf mono (to boost response high levels of blood vit d3 are needed, ezetimibe and nitazoxanide might help response too).if your hbvdna is naturally less than 10iu/ml sequential might not be needed

tenofovir for 1-2 years and then peginterferon add on

2. there is no day I will ever be negative for hbsag, even those who are not infected have a trace of it.
3. peginterferon and vitamin d3 have no effects on hbsag


I could not talk much to her because a mate in my area who did not know of my condition was her record taker,  I resisted,  so treatment discussion is adjourned to tomorrow.

16weeks is too little it cannot be used such a short time, the time to know if one responds is 24 weeks by 16weeks you dont even know if there is response or not, some genotypes may use 12 weeks

the only short time i know is staggered use by pisa research hospital
