if no hbsag decrease by 24 weeks on this combination you can stop both interferon and tenofovir but with carefull monitoring of hbvdna ast/alt
I have been a hepatitis carrier for 6 years, there is no symptoms.
I got the virus from my mum when I was born,
Can this be cured and do I need to take medicine.
I got some information on line. They said I only need to have the baby get vaccine after birth. Is that correct?
