just check our latest posts

the only cure is mking hbvdna undetactable by tenofovir for 1-3 years and then peginterferon add on for another 2 years

hbsag quantification in iu/ml by abbott architect is needed to monitor this therapy and predict hbv clearance.
hbvdna test is just needed during the first 1-3years of tenofovir monotherapy to verify hbvdna is completely suppressed so immune system can be rescued

if you are looking for a fast cure there is none, even acute hbv is cleared in 6-12 months, cronic needs much more time

check ur ILB 28 GENOTYPE.if its favourable for interferon treatment do it .
Hbsag will be negative.
But main pblms u should have a genetype which is favourable for the traphy.

Otherwise no options to get it cleared .
Only we can suppress

if you make claims post the studies link

only hbsag quantity can increase response to peg not Ilb28, still not useful for hbv, only hcv showed a clear correlation

Even I got amazed that the doctor never asked me to do ilb28 test if there was any need for that.

The test does have effect on HBV Genotype D (they tested it for some other genotypes but with less convincing results), your compatriot Lampertico had a study on it:
