it means nothing because it is an obsolete test not quantitative, the number 260 has no meaning, as you can clearly see it has no unit too.this test has also  very high percentage of false negative because it cannot detect hbsag mutants

retest with abbott architect or roches elycsys which are quantitative and can detect mutants, the unit is iu/ml

if hbsag is 260iu/ml you better start alinia+interferon you may clear hbsag very very fast

of course it is cronic (chronic) but you are slowly clearing hbv, making intf will fasten the hbv clearance
